While many of us were safe at home in 2020, the staff on the 4th floor of Spaulding Hospital Cambridge were volunteering to care for Covid-19 patients. In this episode, Amanda and Rachel are joined by Pauline Clarke, a nurse manager at Spaulding Hospital Cambridge and recent 2021 graduate of the MGH IHP Doctor of Nursing Practice program. For her capstone project, Pauline interviewed her staff about their experiences working through the pandemic. What she learned from her staff paints a vivid picture of life and work in 2020 for these dedicated healthcare workers. We discuss the sacrifices they made, as well as the unexpected silver linings they found in the midst of a devastating year.
