Champions of Care: Solving Nursing Challenges in the Face of COVID-19 and Beyond

On this episode of Champions of Care, a Champion Chair podcast, host Daniel Litwin was joined by Jonathan Massey, CCRN Regional Account Manager, Champion Manufacturing.

After sharing a bit about his own journey toward becoming a registered nurse, Massey and Litwin focused in on the challenges nurses face not only during “normal” operation, but during elevated periods of intensity such as the one that’s been brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One of the main issues that’s currently affecting not only nurses, but putting a general strain on our healthcare system, is a lack of materials (and testing kits) specifically for the COVID-19 virus,” Massey said. “Because of the lack of appropriate materials, it’s making it very hard to appropriately test and diagnose patients. … There are potentially patients that are infected that can go under the radar.”

Litwin and Massey also highlighted the need for additional materials among nurses, such as proper masks and other protective equipment, and a lack of adequate and appropriately trained staff that is now being exposed by the spread of the novel coronavirus, particularly in ancillary specialties like respiratory conditions.

On an individual level, practicing social distancing and following stay-at-home orders, both formal and informal, can help reduce the spread of the virus and help the nation’s healthcare industry keep pace until more systemic changes can be implemented after the fact.

Litwin and Massey also dove into how Champion is supporting and educating the healthcare industry, facilitating quality treatment and aiding caregivers and clinical professionals in delivering better patient outcomes.
