I noted that this topic hasn't been addressed in a discussion yet, and it's hung heavy on my mind the past few days. I'm a PACU RN who is currently working night shift in PCU due to staffing needs during this crisis. It was declared at my job this afternoon that PCU would be deemed the COVID floor. Similar to other hospitals, my hospital is not handling PPE properly, and staff is being put at risk each shift. I love my job, and while I'm not so concerned about myself at this time, I have a high-risk family member living with me. More specifically, my mother. She suffered a heart attack and brain anuersym a few years ago, which has left her unable to safely live alone. This past year she was diagnosed with early stage dementia. To put it simply, she is not in good health and I'm terrified I'm going to bring this home to her. I'm coming to terms with the fact that at some point, as things steadily decline, I'm going to have to leave my job.

My question is this, what remote RN options are available currently? I've applied at multiple insurance companies for telephonic or case manager positions, but at this time that is all I've found. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
