The COVID-19 crisis changed the way most people do their work, and that couldn't be more true for the staff and caregivers at St. Peter's Health.
Preparing to care for people during a pandemic has meant that many have new job duties, new routines and a new appreciation for teamwork. Here are a few of their stories:
Life in the COVID-19 Screening Tent
Before COVID-19, Rochelle Quist, RN and Drew Zindell, RN worked as family practice clinical nurse coordinators.
But since early March, Rochelle and Drew have been helping lead the drive-up COVID-19 screening tents at St. Peter’s Health.
It takes a team to deliver great health care
Shannon Williams, PT, DPT, NCS and Dale Koch, MT, MS, NCS are physical therapists by trade.
Shannon and Dale’s world changed after St. Peter’s Health temporarily postponed some services to protect patients and caregivers from COVID-19.
Working from home helps protect patients, caregivers
Kelsey Pocha is the Human Resources On-Boarding Specialist at St. Peter’s Health. After welcoming a new baby girl in December, she was set to return to work following her maternity leave.
She received word that she would be working from home on the same day that she was slated to return to work.
Health care from Home
Shortly after COVID-19 arrived in our community, we successfully accelerated our efforts to launch a telehealth program.
North Clinic Physician Assistant Ashley Berkram, has been completing telehealth visits from her home since March.
