Mary MacDonald: "Please heed my advice."

Oakland County emergency room nurse Mary MacDonald talks about the challenging days treating coronavirus patients in an Instagram video.

"I’m scared I will carry this home,” MacDonald says in the seven-minute video.  “We don’t kiss anymore. I can’t hug my family when I need a hug most. I am scared.”

She goes to say that resources are slim, including protective equipment for medical staff.

"We have no medications to keep these patients even ventilated, let alone ventilators. Medications like fentanyl or propofol -- that would keep a patient sedated while they’re incubated -- we’re out of.”

"Please heed my advice and stay home. Stay home with your loved ones. Don’t go out. Don’t go to the grocery store. Don’t go through the drive-throughs."


Dear Family, Friends and Complete Strangers, Please STAY HOME!! Love, an ER Nurse
