I am Oriana Ramirez a resident physician of Internal Medicine at Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. Last week I lost many of my patients due to a severe respiratory syndrome secondary to CoVID-19. Currently at my hospital most of these patients are intubated. Is hard to deliver bad news but is even harder when these families can't see their love for the last time. I started to comunicate with the families of my patients with my phone using Facetime or Google Duo, during the call I answer all their questions and at the same time I allowed them to see the patient. It was a very hard experience but at the same time it brought a little bit of comfort to the families. I will like to continue this project but I can't do this by own and my phone can't continue to be expose. I want your help to buy some tablets that can be use by doctors and nurses in the room of these patients.
