A Massachusetts Doctor Shares His Experience Fighting COVID-19

A Massachusetts doctor shared his experience fighting against the coronavirus pandemic and its effect on the intensive care unit he leads in the town of Newton, Tuesday.

“Fortunately we have not had to withhold care from anyone in order to take care of someone else. We have prepared for that possibility, as have all the hospitals in Massachusetts, but we haven’t faced that situation,” said Dr. Aran Kadar, Medical Director of the ICU at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.

Talking about one of the challenges he encountered, Kadar mentioned the need to sterilise and reuse the personal protection equipment (PPE).

“This experience has been one of the best and one of the worst things simultaneously that I have done,” Kadar added. “The scope of it, the number of people that are affected is painful, can be heartbreaking. The gaps in communication, and having to convey this information to family members has been really a big challenge, the part that’s so hard for people who are caregivers.”

“The best aspect of it, what I really try to focus on is the collaboration. People have stepped up,” Kadar added. “Everyone has come together.”

The US has recorded over 820,000 coronavirus cases and more than 44,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
