Healthcare workers are on the front line of the struggle against COVID-19. Whether treating Coronavirus patients or promoting ways to help slow the spread, health care personnel are working tirelessly around the clock.
Here are 4 ways you can show your support and help doctors, nurses, facility staff and other healthcare heroes today, plus “promo inspiration to show your appreciation.”
1 – Donate Blood
Unfortunately, the American Red Cross is reporting a blood shortage as many donation drives have been cancelled or postponed. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, “…You can still go out and give blood. We’re worried about potential blood shortages in the future. Social distancing does not have to mean social disengagement.” (2)
2 – Follow their Advice
Heeding expert advice is an easy way to minimize strain on healthcare resources. Following the current government-issued advice to stay home, wash hands and practice social distancing can have a major impact on resource availability at healthcare facilities.
3 – Donate to Charities Supporting Hospitals
If you have the means, donate to a local hospital or organizations that have created COVID-19 response funds to support those affected by Coronavirus as well as first responders. You can also donate to organizations that are helping to provide essential protective equipment to healthcare workers. (3)
4 – Show your Gratitude
Healthcare workers are risking their own well-being to care for patients, even if that means being separated from their families. Be sure to express your thanks for their efforts, in the biggest way you can.
National Nurses Week may not be until May 6th – 12th, but it’s always a good time to show nurses and other healthcare staff your appreciation.
