Nurses emerging as Covid warriors are risking their own lives to keep others safe. Most of the times, their struggle and physical hardships get un-noticed. They are working overtime Due to this Pandemic which has affected their mental and physical health. Nurses are playing an important role in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It is difficult to win the battle against coronavirus without nurses as they are helping doctors in the treatment of patients. They are also inoculating COVID-19 vaccine to patients.
In the successful management of any health crisis like COVID-19, nurses act as a vital link between the patient and the rest of the health care team. As the situation is getting grimmer with each passing day, the situation at COVID wards remains gloomy. In such situations, nurses go a step further from their usual job and creates a lively and happy environment to cheer up the patients and raise their morale to fight against COVID-19.
