Whitney Hilton is a nurse living in Utah. She usually works at McKay-Dee Hospital, but Whitney recently traveled to New York City to help out on the front lines.
While there, Whitney worked at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and she documented the experience in a blog post.
“This is a humbling experience. I have so much to say but almost too overwhelmed to say it all,” Whitney explained about traveling 2,200 miles to New York to lend a hand.
“New York has been hit HARD. The people need help, the nurses need help, the doctors need help, everyone needs help.”
“This is crisis mode like I’ve never seen. This is an incredible experience, albeit the hardest thing I’ve ever done AND equally the most rewarding.”
She also went on to say, “The nurses are burned out; they’ve been through these last couple of weeks.”
