Life Under Coronavirus

Episode 9: Behind the scenes at Stony Brook

Stony Brook University Hospital is at the heart of Long Island’s fight against COVID-19. Episode 9 of “Life Under Coronavirus” is a tour of some quieter sections of the hospital with Dr. Kristie Golden, a member of the hospital administration executive team.

Away from the busy medical areas, Golden discusses telehealth measures meant to better serve and protect patients and healthcare workers, and ways the hospital is trying to keep up the spirits of employees on the front lines. “I think that there are so many things that healthcare workers are taught,” she says. “And one of those things is about how to manage a difficult situation, how to stay calm in a situation that to the average person might be extraordinary.”
