Life Under Coronavirus

Episode 7: ‘Three South Strong,’ the COVID-19 nurses

Three South was the first section of Mather Hospital set up for COVID-19 patients. This episode follows two members of that unit: Kathleen Long, nurse manager, and Noelle Menchini, registered nurse, describe how they help patients with FaceTime calls and medical care, even as the floor gets fuller and fuller. “I’ve been a nurse for 30 years,” says Long. “And we have never seen anything like this.” This is the seventh episode of “Life Under Coronavirus” about the region’s helpers during the current health crisis.
