Messages from your colleagues: thanks, words of support and encouragement.

I'd like to give a shoutout to my supply chain people working behind the scenes to keep the life's blood of supplies flowing through our facilities during this crisis and beyond. Go Team SCM!!!

The NCCU nurses at Harborview who have overnight gone from taking care of strokes, TBIs, SAH, and tumors are now just as masterfully caring for the COVID-19 patients and suspected cases. I have always admired them, but never more than now. They are heroic.

I want to thank you to all for great communication and fast adjustments to the ever-changing protocols and needs.

Laboratory: excellent organization and communication. Going from 1,500 tests per day to 10,000 in such a short time. Thank you!

Pharmacy: hand sanitizer making – amazing!

IT IS AN HONOR TO WORK WITH ALL OF YOU!

Thanks for keeping me up-to-date on all the covid 19 special information that comes to my email from UW Medicine Leadership. It's not particularly meant for me, but it helps ease my mind to know the inside story. And some information is VERY useful. Likes today's message on grieving the passing of life events. Very pertinent. Thanks!

Thanks to everyone working as dofficers the last several weeks on the fifth floor through daily changes, grabbing supplies, and helping us to be safe.

Thank you to Yilin Zhang and Mark Mayo for becoming our hospitalist COVID-19 experts. Both are doing incredible jobs (above and beyond their usual hard work) to distill the constant new information from multiple sources so that we can stay on top of things and provide better care to our patients. So honored to work with you both!

I want to thank Celine England for being and incredible leader to our unit in this very scary, uncertain time. She has never wavered from her message of priority to staff safety. We are heard, and she is an incredible advocate. I feel so fortunate to be working where I do.

Angad Singh is my hero! He has done an amazing job teaching all of us how to use technology to care for patients. I could not be caring for patients effectively without him.

An amazing group of nurses, techs, MAs, NP's, registration, security, ED managers, PSS, radiology, SPMs, social workers, pharmacists, doctors, and especially housekeepers. We could not do our work without this team!!!

I've been a volunteer with the Patient and Family Liaisons at Harborview ICU Help Desk for the past 5 years. Every single one of you has had my absolute respect during that time, for your incredible skill, stunning compassion, and tireless dedication. It is SO hard not to be there with you all now, but you are carried in spirit.

The main front entrance hospital staff are so courageous as they greet everyone. They communicate welcome and safety. Thank you each for the valiant presence you are providing.

It’s taken me most of today to think of a proper way to say thank you. There are no words to say how I feel about our UW family, so let this be my “virtual” hug to each and every one of you!
