New Year’s 2020 was just like every other joyful celebration before for Patricia B. Crain MSN BSN RN.

Working as a registered nurse in the ICU, Crain’s day-to-day changed in an instant, with more and more protocols and safety measures to follow, to watch patient after patient arrive critically-ill and on ventilators, overwhelming the hospital system and staff.
