Hi @Pete1 yes I am tired its been a long week this last week and things are hotting up. We are now going into overspill with Covid-19 patients and it won't be long before the hospital is flooded with Covids. We are now changing from seperate areas to simply red and green zones and even in green zones surgical masks must be worn at all times, red zones FFP3 masks must be worn. Lots of difficult decision making already unfortunately, but I'd like to reassure TP members these are based on each persons presentation and not just one factor, we have postively treated older people as well as younger ones so far, provided they have no underlying co-morbidities that are contraindicated.Pleased to hear the staff at the Care Home have the PPE they need @Palerider, that has been an epic fail by this government - they have had since January to prepare for this. A friend of mine works on the wards in our general hospital and she still hasn't got the right kit, but she is being asked to work 7-days a week - it's absolutely shameful. I hope you are faring ok in the circumstances, it must be so difficult not being able to see Mum in these circumstances. I would imagine you are shattered physically and emotionally. Take care of yourself.
Its hard doing this job and then thinking about mum, because I know full well the consequences. My only wish is that I can see her and visit, thats my only gripe
