I’m a nurse working in a care home. We have 4 empty beds and had stopped taking new admissions as we had 2 cases of suspected COVID 19, but will have to take new admissions from hospital or the community now as the bills and staff wages have to be paid. The home is run by a charity, there are no profits and has to break even. We are all kindhearted people and will be welcoming to the new admissions, but we are also frightened as we have woefully inadequate PPE . My partner found some goggles in his tool kit today and I’m taking them to work tomorrow. The home was in 14 day lockdown in March and 11 staff members volunteered to stay in the home, sleeping on the floor and working round the clock. We are not back to normal. The residents are isolated in their rooms and are not allowed any visitors. It is sad times indeed.
