For many people around the world, the holiday season often corresponds with a slower pace at work and more time spent with loved ones. However, for emergency nurses, providing critical care to patients with everything from mild colds to extreme injuries is an around-the-clock job 365 days of the year. We recently spoke with Sandeep Kaur, RN, who works in the emergency department at NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln in Bronx, N.Y., which had the third-most emergency department visits in the country in 2017, about the important role of emergency nurses during the holidays.
