Flint Nurse Claps Back at President’s Claim About Stealing Masks
"Dear Mr. President, I have a confession. You’re right. I’ve been hoarding masks."
Chelsea Coffey-Smith has a few words for the President of the United States.
She's a nurse and a mom of two boys - one has asthma and the other has epilepsy - and she is NOT HAPPY about President Trump's claim that hospitals are hoarding supplies.
Her Facebook post reads:
Dear Mr. President, I have a confession.
I’ve been hoarding masks.
The masks I’m hoarding are made from donated fabric. They’re made by women that learned to make them last week. They’re held to my head by makeshift ties from headbands because other nurses are clearly hoarding elastic. I’m hoarding the “filters” that slide inside. I’m not sure what they’re made of but barring a tissue filled with arsenic I’m willing to try it. I’m hoarding them so the nurses with their units already filled with Covid might get a real one...
I’m hoarding them because those kiddos having breakfast quarantined in their (newly stained glass) home have asthma and epilepsy.
I’m hoarding crude medical supplies and I’m just a new nurse...those experienced nurses must have the vents.
