Door County Medical Center President and CEO Brian Stephens knows his team of nurses and doctors are tired, but he is proud of how they have persevered. Approximately 85 percent of the positive tests in Door County have come since the beginning of September. The Door County Public Health Department has reported 57 positive tests this week as of Wednesday morning. Stephens says many of the doctors and nurses have worked for weeks straight, without a lot of time off, due to the demand at the hospital and staff members that have been forced to quarantine. He says they are doing what they can to help their team’s mental and emotional health during this stretch.
He adds that the team has been able to do amazing things by working together, as it relates to how many patients they can care for and types of conditions they are seeing.
