Facing staffing strains, team members are working longer days and taking on additional shifts to provide the in-depth care these patients require – all while dealing with the emotional toll of caring for so many who are severely ill and others who don’t survive the relentless virus. And no one knows when the number of hospitalizations might ease.
“These incredibly sweet cards made by the thoughtful youngsters at the Georgetown County Family YMCA summer camps lift the tired spirits of our dedicated team members in ways we simply can’t describe,” said Pam Maxwell, chief nursing officer. “The cards brighten a tough day for our team – bringing out a needed smile or prompting a few happy tears as it reminds them that people – even children – recognize and appreciate their efforts to serve our patients and community.
“Any gesture – these cards, a simple thank you, a donation of a meal – lets our front-line professionals know their sacrifices are appreciated and that they have the support of our community. It means so much at this challenging time.”
