An El Paso nurse appeared against an appeals court that temporarily blocked the judge’s stay-at-home order. A group of nurses in El Paso says the court decision will only endanger the community which is already dealing with Covid-19 surge cases in hospitalizations and cases.
In a virtual news conference by the National Nurses United, three registered in El Pason nurses criticized the judge’s decision stating that the shutdown of non-essential businesses that was supposed to be scheduled to last until December 1st should be put on hold for now.
A nurse who’s working in a hospital in El Paso for 20 years says they are greatly disappointed by the court decision. They also say the state leaders support insensitive and irresponsible ways to address the needs of the community as well as those who work on the frontline against the deadly virus.
They say that the state leaders have no clue whatsoever on what they are going through in the hospitals. The nurse added that they go through each day and night taking care of the Covid-19 patients and see they cannot breathe.
Another El Paso nurse says they are disappointed and concerned regarding the shutdown order. One nurse has worked for eight years in a hospital in El Paso and called the last month “overwhelming” not just physically but also emotionally.
