An Ethical Dilemma

Check this out. What you will see is a spin on the COVID-19 virus I hadn’t considered, but should have. Here you will see a retired nurse express her opinion that healthcare workers have a real ethical dilemma as to whether or not they should be treating COVID patients in the absence of appropriate protective equipment. What if they get infected themselves? What if they spread the virus to other patients?  

Bottom Line. I never thought about healthcare workers having a choice, let alone a dilemma, about whether they should be going to work under these circumstances. This nurse says that if she were still working, she would be staying home. 

Between practitioners getting sick and those choosing to stay home(?), this could get very dicey!
