Nurses are on the frontlines fighting a war on nCoV19 that no one expected. Across the globe you can find these individuals serving humanity in the fight against the corona virus outbreak.  While many on the outside are panic buying you can see nurses serving in their assigned capacities. Through it all you see their commitment, vigor, and professionalism expressed in their genuine care and compassion. If they are fearful themselves, they have no time to entertain their fears and must continue forward with the greater cause.

Our company recognizes our nurses and that’s why we decided to give them a platform to share their stories. We want people like you to understand their vital role during this time and to honor them for their service. Below are a few responses to questions I asked Kim McFadden, a frontliner. Indeed, this is what it means to be on the frontline. 

WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING A NURSE?

It really means something to me to be able to be there to support my patients in what is possibly one of the more, if not the most difficult time in their life.”

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A WOMAN BEGINING HER CAREER IN THE MEDICAL FIELD?

“Hang in there.  Being there for someone else’s difficult time means becoming emotionally invested and sometimes can therefore result in heartache. Take comfort in the fact that what you’re doing matters. You will be there in someone else’s time of need and sometimes you are the only one there for them.”

HOW HAS THE CORONA VIRUS AFFECTED YOUR ROLE AS A NURSE?

“The coronavirus pandemic has brought on a kind of advanced feeling of PTSD for many of us, as we are expecting something terrible to come but don’t know exactly when we will get the worst of it or how bad it will get.  I have seen nurses having panic attacks and crying in their cars before coming to work. We are all worried but know we have to do what needs to get done to get through this.”

WHAT IS THE CORONAVIRUS AND WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF nCOV19?

“The coronavirus outbreak that began in Wuhan, China is a strain of a new virus that has not been seen in humans.  The symptoms of the virus show up in shortness of breath, fever, and coughing.”

IS THE CORONAVIRUS AIRBONE?

“Yes, droplets containing the corona virus can travel.   It can last on surfaces as well, depending on the type of surface.  Nurses in my hospital can’t wear masks precautionarily because there is a low supply of PPE.  When needed, we have to request a mask from the supervisor. If you want to know how to help the frontline and help yourselves, we need to get a supply of PPE going.  People inside and outside of the hospitals need it.  Contrary to what you may have heard, masks are essential right now.”

IS THERE A CURE FOR THE CORONAVIRUS?

“Not yet.”

HOW WE CAN HELP OUR FRONTLINERS

Our frontline is facing this crisis head on. It’s important for us to recognize this fact and get them the practical and emotional support they need.  If you know ways to manufacture PPE and provide it to the hospitals you would be providing a major relief to many in the medical field. To prevent our frontline from receiving more patients you need to stay home.  Take this time to enjoy being with your family in and around your home. This will greatly reduce the number of illnesses, which will in turn relieve our frontline.  

Every person serving in the medical field would benefit from knowing they are supported and valued throughout their community.  Emotional encouragement during this time goes a long way. If you personally know someone who is serving on the frontlines take time to honor them.  Send them a special gift, call them to say a genuine thank you, or drop them a personalized card in the mail. If you don’t personally know someone who is in the medical field you are still likely to cross paths with a nurse.  If you see a nurse at your local market consider them first. Give them priority. Allow them to go through the cashier line first, give them preference in selecting their goods, or simply honor them with a nice hello and friendly wave.  

Let’s create a new platform for our heroes.  

HUMAN DESIGN’S RELATIONSHIP TO OUR FRONTLINERS

Human Design greatly appreciates the vital role our frontliners have taken during this time.  We recognize their efforts to go above the call of duty and sacrifice their personal needs for the greater cause of others.  Human Design upholds frontliners’ positions in our fight against the coronavirus. We strongly believe in offering support in the areas of our community that need it the most.  

HOW HUMAN DESIGN IS IMPACTING OUR FRONTLINERS?

We have demonstrated our value for our frontliners by creating a campaign that honors them while they are serving out in the field.  Our company is giving nurses across the country a voice by collecting their stories of how they are managing this global situation.  We are gifting our jewelry to the nurses who want to share their stories. Every purchase you make is completely matched by us. Nurses around the country are receiving a select piece of sustainable jewelry along with the opportunity to be heard.  We want to alleviate their burdens by making them smile and listening to their heart. Our goal is to give nurses a platform to bring awareness to our communities.

HOW YOU CAN HELP ?

Join this movement by visiting our website.  There, you will see the campaign. Select jewelry for yourself, friend, or family member.  Soon you will receive notification about how a nurse in your local area was gifted through your purchase.  We will send you their name, photo, and their personal response to this global situation. Thank you for your impact to your local geographical region.
