My hospital made my floor along with 3 ICUs & 2 other med surg floors dedicated to COVID patients. I know that I'm a nurse & this is what I signed up for but in reality nurses do not go into this profession thinking they are going to be on the front lines of a global pandemic that is literally bringing life to a halt as we know it. It's frightening. My floor currently has 40 patients either COVID + or R/O COVID. As afraid as I am for these patients, I am afraid for myself as well. I feel like not only am I jeopardizing myself but my whole family. For PPE, I wear the gown, goggles, hair net, shoe nets, 2 pairs of gloves, N95 plus surgical mask. I wash my hands so much at work now my skin becomes irritated. When my shift ends, I take my scrubs off and put them in a bag and change into clean clothes. When I get to my car, I put gloves on and wipe my work shoes with bleach wipes place them in a bag then change into another pair of shoes before getting into my car. Then when I get into my car I use hand sanitizer. When I get home I wash my hands again. Then I shower very very very thoroughly & wipe all the door knobs with Lysol wipes then stay in my room, I even eat in my room now. Even with all these precautions that I am taking, I feel like I'm going to catch the virus sooner or later. I'm so afraid to infect my family members. I feel like I should quarantine myself. I've been having a lot of anxiety over this to the point where sometimes I can't eat.. I just need some honest advice please.
