Men in Nursing 2020 – Manager in Ambulatory Surgery, Martin Espina, PIH Health Good Samaritan Hospital, Los Angeles
Looking back on this year, what have been the biggest changes in your practice?
In previous years, my practice was mostly limited to individual patient care. As I’ve taken on the role of nurse manager, I have shifted my focus to making my nurses’ practice more efficient while maintaining a high quality of care.
Tell us about the most inspirational thing you’ve experienced as a nurse during this pandemic.
The number of people who have volunteered to take care of COVID-19 patients in the cohorted units. These frontline workers do not have to be exposed, but they do so because when they chose a healthcare career, they pledged to care for those who are ill.
