The ACCESS Nursing Services COVID Care Force, led by ACCESS Nursing CEO Louise Weadock, is revving up again! Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo revealed this week that New York is entering a “new phase in the war against COVID” in The New York Times story, Cuomo Fears ‘Nightmare of Overwhelmed Hospitals’ as Virus Cases Spike. With the goal of preventing hospitals from becoming overwhelmed like they did in March during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cuomo unveiled a series of emergency measures as the daily positivity rate continues to rise throughout the New York and Tristate region.
ACCESS Nursing is now recruiting for its “second wave” team of COVID Care Force nurses, who will be specially-trained by ACCESS Nursing in preparation for “deployment” throughout New York City, Westchester County and New Jersey to staff COVID-19 testing sites, hospital ICUs, nursing homes and to provide home nursing care for the vast number of COVID-19 patients needing to recover at home. During the first wave of the pandemic, the COVID Care Force totaled over 1,500 RNs and PAs and became the “Call to Arms” movement of nurses recruited, organized and led by ACCESS Nursing Services to join the front-line fight to save lives and fight the volatile COVID-19 virus that had inundated the healthcare system in the NY/NJ Metro area.
