How she’s multiplying good: She is One in a Million. During Covid19 Social Workers continued to support families throughout the vast changes of the crisis. As hospital policies change often and rapidly, Social Workers supporter families and staff through all the new protocols. This presented challenges at times with limits to many things such as visitation, transportation options, and changes to availability in outpatient therapies and discharge options. Having a child with medical and/or behavioral needs can be challenging enough; and combined with the added stress of COVID 19, Social Workers did everything from access resources for families to simply holding their hand through the process. Social Workers play such an essential role in the clinical care of children and their families and oftentimes offer the same support to medical staff. The ability to be a part of such an amazing team at Nemours has truly been life changing— both professionally and personally.
