Sarah Cohron, R.N., is a new nurse at Norton Hospital. Her letter to Norton Healthcare President and CEO Russell F. Cox:
My name is Sarah Cohron, and I am a 23-year-old new graduate nurse. I exercise regularly and I don’t have any medical conditions that put me at risk for developing COVID-19, so I didn’t think I’d develop any sort of respiratory illness this spring. I was surprised to be sent home from work on March 27 with a high temperature, and I was even more surprised when I began experiencing shortness of breath a few days later. I was diagnosed with mild pneumonia in my left lung, but thankfully, my test for COVID-19 was negative. These findings were only possible because Norton Healthcare has created such an amazing emergency response system. I wanted to share a list of a few specific things I wanted to thank you for:
It’s hard to express how grateful my family and I are for how Norton Healthcare’s actions have affected my little corner of the world. Not all hospitals in the area are doing half of what you all are doing, and this creates added stress and anxiety for their employees. Thank you again!
