    1. After A Long Night Of Hooking

      Please contact Nicole Sirotek.

      If the manager didn't know what the protocol was, why would she then ring every staff member on that team except for one particular nurse? If the manager didn't know what the protocol was then the manager wouldn't have contacted any of the staff to update them at all. Also, a manager would've been aware of and responsible for assigning every nurse who was working on their floor. I'm a social care worker in England and my employer and a manager just did the same thing to me, twice. I work night shifts and a new lady I was working with for the second time disclosed to me during the shift that she felt sick. She told me her symptoms and she was just not well at all. Infact she fell asleep during the night shift as she was so unwell. The next day I was told she is sick and won't be coming back to work for awhile. She was off work sick for 3 weeks. I was suspicious and noticed that she was due back to work on a particular date and I was going to be back on duty with her. I emailed my senior management and asked them to please encourage the staff to social distance where possible because they were not doing it when possible and I felt unsafe. Also, only myself and another colleague used the surgical masks consistently, the rest don't want to wear it at all. I also told the senior management in the email to please inform me if any colleague who I have had close contact with has coronervirus that they must please inform me of the exposure so that I can take added precautions for me and my loved ones. I also explained that I was concerned regarding my colleague who was due to return to work, I asked them to please inform me if she has had the virus because I work night shifts and there are only two staff members on every night shift and I had close contact with her. The senior management after sending me some argumentative reply emails then sent a final email stating that if there is an outbreak of the coronervirus virus in the unit then all staff members will be informed. Anyway, later that day after receiving this final email response I returned to work for a night shift, that colleague who went off sick had returned and she was on duty with me. I didn't ask her anything, my heart lead me to just work normal but I had been getting lots of dreams from God and visions and he warned me that I should continue to wear my face mask when I go to work and not do as my colleagues were doing. So I wore my surgical mask. During the shift my colleagues and I began a conversation and she told me that the reason she was gone for three weeks is because she was in hospital with coronervirus, she was diagnosed with mild coronervirus. She was apparently on oxygen and had to be moved to a private ward because a doctor told her that the first ward she was on due to there being other coronervirus patients on that ward alot more severely sick compared to her, if she had remained on that ward by the end of the week she would've become as sick as the most sick person on that ward. She the moved her to a private ward. This shows that there are different strains of the virus btw. She was in hospital for over a week or two I think she said. But she then also told me that though she was back at work she was still not feeling well. She said that since leaving the hospital she noticed that during the night her body temperature is higher than during the day time, she also had headaches If I can remember correctly. Despite all of this, this young lady was NOT wearing a facial mask. She told me that she came back to work because the manager rang her and asked her if she can come back to work because the unit is short of staff. The management did not inform me that a colleague was convid positive or even just to tell me about the exposure instead to protect data. Even though they knew this they still allowed me to work with her and care for vulnerable clients without notifying me of her status. This happened in April 2020. But this is a pattern of behaviour with my employer, I live in England and I work in a care Residential home. In March 2020 I had to go into isolation for 17 days because two of my colleagues had gone off work with coronervirus symptoms and both of them I had close contact with, however it was a team leading member of staff who informed me of the exposure. Not the management. I went to work and was told about the exposure as I arrived. I was so angry because they knew I had been exposed to both of those colleagues and they still allowed me to come back in to work after my days off without informing me in advance. After working that night shift the following morning before I signed off duty the registered manager rang the unit and asked to speak with me. I took the phone and instead of informing me of the exposure she instead asked me to cover an extra shift. When I told her what the team leader informed of the night before, the manager commented that the team leader should not have disclosed that information to me. I then went to health service and they told me to self isolate. So this is a pattern of behaviour within the care system, so please be wise everyone and protect yourself. Be very careful. Pray and becareful.

      Ha I’m a nurse and shit like this happens every day. I would’ve done the same thing. If you don’t advocate for yourself in the medical world, they will take advantage of you. It is a reality in nursing.

    4. Bertah' Zanoah

    6. Rhonda Loop

    7. Pagan Monkey

      Melissa this is even a bigger cover up, if you are quitting your job start with getting Bill Gates fauci and all the other corrupt m************ out there expose them as you duty in life. The majority of people with a brain no there's a big cover up hence the riots, the killing of innocent people expose the truth.

    8. Carol Stockman

      I am a retired Nurse and fully support Melissa's decision. Many managers are not Nurses and behave badly like this.

    9. Yianhin Saechao

      That guy annoys the shitt out of me.. Interrupting THE interviewee,let her finish A sentence..b4u speak.. fucking annoying..

    10. Soso Tez

      This radio station promote BS..!!

    11. Pam Harrington

      You are so right on what you did!! Thank you for your service! You should have never had to go thru that!

    12. Michelle S

      LOL she is a nurse and you have a moral obligation to save lives, especially during a crisis. To me it sounds like she didn't want to work on the corona floor for fear of contracting the virus because she has kids and her husband lives out of state so how is she going to self quarantine and watch her kids? Girl bye you need to go into another field if you tryna pick and choose who you help, especially in these dire times. Now all the other shit she stated like not getting an email about the patient testing positive and management etc is bullshit. It is her right to keep her family safe but be fair and recognize she doesn't want to do her job. And before you make any excuses answer this: If every nurse, doctor, emt, ma, etc quit because of fear of contracting corona and you all validate her then who is going to take care of the sick and dying.

    13. Subrina Bailey

      Its called Medical Genocide

    14. Vincent E Stone

      MRS. SCOTT is a GREAT CARING PERSON/PRO. She along with several other BLACK Nurses have kept THE WHOLE STATE INFORMED. fa·vor·it·ism/ Defined below: ˈfāv(ə)rəˌtizəm/noun the practice of giving unfair preferential treatment to one person or group at the expense of another.

    15. Line Grant

      What a shame how they teated her or any nurses. I have 2 nieces and a daughter in law as nurses. These ppl work hard, care and compassion for others and this kind of treatment they get. Shameful and disgusted.

    16. Karen Shelton

      Their is a legal term that if you are forced to quit a job due to hostile environment that you can sue. File a lawsuit against his employer.

    17. Karen Shelton

      You can secretly videotape that phone call. Take a video pen inside.

    18. Mary Diamond

      Free flu shot recipients test+

    19. introversy

      I had to quit my job as well due to lack of PPE, i talked about it in my videos hopefully to help whoever needs it. stay safe everybody

    20. Krystal Smith

      Why not respect the choices of those that decided to make their health a priority. Even on a plane they tell folk to secure their own masks before trying to help someone else. You can be no help to anyone if you are dead.

    21. Carrow Xhex

      I don’t get hazard pay and I see 20 to 40 Covid19 patients a day as a Rapid Response Nurse. I spent $700 of my money paying for PPE for me and my coworkers and the hospital refused to let us wear it because it wasn’t approved. The supervisor never leaves her office, so I wear my own PPE and she hasn’t caught me yet and I have been doing this for two months.

    22. 12wise34 -

      Very interesting interview

    23. Beth Daniel

      The manager must be a white woman 😆

    24. TheMighty2save

      Please Drink Apple cider, lemon and add honey with warm water to save your lives

    25. Pamela Decambre

      Vitamin D deficiency shows correlation to more severe symptoms to the CCP/European virus a.k.a Covid-19. Please get your blood tested for vitamin D levels. It's not a cure but it may prevent more severe symptoms, and death especially for people of color.

    26. Moose

      This is the reason why i opt out of the medical field.. they treat nurses and CNA horriable, then they treat housekeeper worst... you will be bless keep up the great work...

    27. Cynthia Adams

      That why nurses are leaving the profession!!!

    28. curious one

      Angela......shut up❤️

    29. marigold beam

      Good for you darling. You are responsible for your wellbeing and that of your family first and foremost. We all know how little they value our lives, African nurses are dying in disproportionate numbers in the UK due to racist practices. They don't care about us as black people, we have to care for ourselves.

    30. Steve B

      So this "hero" isn't so heroic. She smells some free money cominge . Or maybe a lawsuit. Thank goodness for the ones that didn't quit. To heck with this woman.

    31. Paula Newton

      She is telling the truth. I've seen multiple videos of white Nurses committing suicide because they are purposely killing black people.

    32. Ulysses Grant

      Wow! They are playing with our lives. I'm to the point where I am beginning not to care about my job or patients. My family means so much more to me, than going to work and watching people die and suffer. Suffer because they can't stay their a-sses home and wear masks. Watching these ignorant people out at Bars, in stores, and congregating. This BS about the PPE is tripping and the president is hanging us out to die.

    33. Ulysses Grant

      I'm about to leave mines as well.

    34. Lumen Illius

      Melissa has prior health issues, obligations, and children which can be affected by some jackass not doing their positions due diligence. This was a threat to all aspects of MELISSA'S LIFE and all she loves, I would be just as angry as her! Much love for you doing what is right! Thank you Melissa for putting this person on front street, I hope no one else has to go through this.

    35. Myopinion

      So sad. I am a nurse whose husband is currently deployed to Iraq and I am a frontline nurse. I, like all nurses know the risk of medical service especially in a pandemic. Your risk are lower with the proper PPE. I would be surprised that her manager would single her out in that manner. COVID patients are really like any other contact and airborne precaution patient. If you as a provider are following those standards set in place your risk becomes almost negative. If this nurse felt she was not capable of functioning under this pandemic she should have follow her change of command and requested to be furloughed. I would like to hear the other side of the story and discover the truth between. Side note, medical providers are at risk of life and limb all the time, if we all just up and abandon our careers who would take care of those in need, who would care of our very own loved ones.

      If you want to look like a strong people quitting isn’t the way to do it !!

    37. Robin Adams

      Go find another occupation. Nursing is not for you.

    38. Candida Herron

      40 years in nursing , this is not the first time management has not let staff know a patient was diagnosed with an infectious desease or a patient was admitted with infectious condition or desease !!! Staff has a right to know !!!

    39. Carole Chevannes

      They did that to my friend, in London England ' she quit her job after 26years.

    40. Chimeneyah Yahbarnes

      5G helps keep people sick and killing them also a man who just quit his job from putting up 5G give you flu like systems and give you diabetes tumors cancer and everybody dying they say from Coronavirus and that's not true young ppl mostly on their cells phone around 5G all day so this bigger then Coronavirus research 5g scientist and doctors are saying this also

    41. Jason Striation

      Take your talents to Texas.

    42. Cruzan

      There are multiple reasons for nurses quitting. I have witnessed nurses taking care of Covid 19 positive patients wearing surgical masks. Nurses are under appreciated. We have been involved of patients that were not diagnosed until they were in the hospital for almost 24 hours. The attitude that I sense in management is that many nurses are young and healthy. The thinking is that they will not get very ill if they contract Covid 19.

    43. 43ShaDey

      I trained and schooled 4 years to get into medical. I stopped after realizing that the medical system has stopped caring about saving lives and started only caring about $$$. This was mid/late 90’s. When I was growing up, I had full coverage medical insurance under my parents, money wAs never an issue, everything was paid for. Then came HMOs. It was the start of the downfall. Now they teach medical staff to treat patients ACCORDING TO WHAT THEIR INSURANCE COVERS! That’s unreal. I cannot believe what these medical professionals put up with, nor how they deal with the guilt afterwards.

      That nurse Melissa did the right thing quitting that nursing job under those circumstances!!!

    46. Anthony Loy

      You people are full of it we have 10 of thousands nurse and doctors who are laid off hospital are empty ,all the extra beds the army erected are empty. Should I have these people call you. Get a life take some Hydroxychloroquine millions have taken it across the world and gotten better in less than an hour,including Prime ministers, Governor and mayor and, Presidents. And Congress Senate, but they turn around and said you cant use it, evil people .

    47. love a nurse 55

      She did the right thing for herself and her precious gifts in this life, her children❤️

    48. Misty Mcguire

      This is happening in other areas besides healthcare. There is no upfront transparency in many essential fields such as essential retail and essential production. If a case is suspected its being told to keep hush b/c don't want to create panic but the lies alone create panic. There is no trust among the employee and the employer what you are told for safety and what you are forced to do at the consequence of losing your job are very different. This needs to be investigated by someone impartial you'll find in all areas people are being taken advantage of so the elite can keep making dollars . This is not the America are forefathers intended.

    49. Rovet Senior

      My heart ❤️ goes out to you my beautiful God knows why some people been treated with respect and some other aren’t. You don’t need to even explain yourself to people because if u get sick who will care for the sick plus your kids. ????

    52. Tanishia Magee

      Yes I believe her. I have assisted many nurses and Dr. Who act and treat individuals that way all day long. And they are bluntly racist and rude. You report them and you get black listed as a problem so now you at work being watched like a a criminal.

    55. Sharon H

    56. Sharon H

      You did the right decision and the nurse manager was wrong

    57. Going Deep

      Are you kidding me. A history of breast cancer does not mean you are automatically immunocompromised. I agree some things should of been handle differently, but it is no different then when we have been taking care of a active TB patient and find out three days later while utilizing standard precautions. Unfortunately the system is not perfect and it’s a risk we take being a nurse. And some comments, “ we need to protect our nurses of color”. That is some racist shit. I’m a nurse of color but please stop using your color for special treatment, it’s makes it harder for the rest of us that try to make it every day using our brains and working hard...

    58. Mwinyi Mwenyi

      How about rumors that nurses are murdering patients(minorities) in New York by way of neglect? de-news.net/online/video-Kd7RvUraG4c.html

    59. Misses Mandarin

      These medical staff wearing same mask repeatedly are spreading virus to the patients

    60. Misses Mandarin

      Yes you can still contract viru6 with PPE, but at least you have a fighting chance with N95 and the rest

    61. MsB

      I had a similar situation with my director she would not exempt me with a history of cancer and currently seeing cardiology. I went to my director, Hr & employee health they would not exempt me and a few others on the unit. My 1st day on the after notifying everyone of my condition I was assigned 6 patient whom all came back positive for COVID-19. I began experiencing mild symptoms GI upset, Chest tightness, cough and sever headaches which lasted about 2weeks. Symptoms improved some then as I continued working with Covid-19 patients symptoms started again lasted another weeks before improving the second time. Now my director has contracted Covid-19 she's been out over 2 months. Maybe she will have better appreciation for others with previous underlying health issues that would make you more acceptable to Covid-19. Perhaps the universe & God is teaching her a lesson. Do unto others as you would have the do to you👌💯

      Travel Nurses aren't Paid Directly by the Hospital. The Travel Nursing Agency Pays Travel Nurses, so; They have a different agreement with the Travel Nurse vs. Regular Hospital Staff Nurses.

    68. Coleen Goodell

      This young lady is very well spoken and what happened very clearly stated. The manager contacted everyone else about the patients Covid status, but not her. She shouldn't have been working with Covid 19 patients because of her medical history. She was excluded from the hazard pay while doing hazardous duty. PPE was dismally below par. She's a mother first and foremost. God help us all during this pandemic. Our health care system is a disaster for everyone but the chosen 1%. Nurses have been juguling too many patients at a time since hospitals became big for profit businesses.
