Sonja Reinert, a labor and delivery nurse at Emory Hospital Midtown in Atlanta, posted an emotional video on Facebook Friday, urging people to stay home and stop stealing their supplies.
She said they don't have enough personal protective equipment or other supplies. They've had to hide, gloves hats and even hand sanitizer because people have been stealing it.
"We had stuff just disappear. We had to hide them because people would just take them,” Reinert said.
“I think that’s what’s the most shocking is that people walking into a hospital and think they can just take something," she added.
Reinert said hospital administrators are doing everything they can to get the supplies they need. She went on to ask the public for face masks and supplies, adding, "please consider donating them because we don't have anything."
Reinert said they test any patients with a cough for coronavirus, but the results don't come back for three days. They've been treating any patients with symptoms as if they have the disease.
