Jerry Soucy, is always known as the Death Nurse. His nursing practice is palliative care and he writes a compelling blog about his work with patients and families at the end of life. COVID19 brings these issues front and center.  We are watching hospitals across the country scramble for respirators and learn of families being separated from their critically ill loved ones in real time. Jerry shares his expertise in an informative video and provides resources in this guest blog. Please also visit Jerry’s website: Death Nurse.
