Working from home has become the norm for many people, but for those on the front lines of our healthcare system that is not an option.

COVID-19 is a crisis unlike others they have faced, and one that puts them at significant personal risk. Exact numbers won’t be known until the pandemic is over, but the International Council of Nurses reported in March that healthcare workers make up 9% of those infected in Italy.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher we’re talking to the front-line healthcare workers who are fighting a pandemic.

Guests:

  • Dr. Matt Exline, Medical Director, Intensive Care Unit, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center
  • Rick Lucas, President of The Ohio State University Nurses Organization and a board member of the Ohio Nurses Association
  • Matt Vaughan, Senior Vice President of Contract Research, Battelle
