This s my experience in Bangalore; our hospital s announced to be a COVID Hospital.
At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, I was posted as a supervisor for the COVID ward and received a lot of complaints regarding the availability of essential facilities to the nurses, not even organized for nurses; the sad thing is our nursing superiors are the in-charges, their r least bothered about the basic facilities, we the colleagues fought each other for basic facilities and tried to get maximum for Nurses for upcoming batches.
During the COVID pandemic, we are proud to tell great warriors to fight against the deadly disease. Initially, everyone is scared to work with disease and, most importantly, with difficulties wearing PPE. Many of our nursing colleagues have fainted during duty and are exhausted.
Finally finished the first supervision duty onward and coordinated well with my colleagues.
I say thanks to all my colleagues.
Still, I feel in our institute; nurses are underestimated. Nurses have to demand daily for the primary facility; there is a lot of discrimination, and other health care providers are treated with very high hospitality, whereas nurses have to demand and request everything.
