17: COVID-19 The Nurse Response: Safe Homes

May 21, 2020


With shelter-in-place orders in effect across the country, people are spending prolonged periods of time inside their homes but what happens when home isn’t safe? In this episode of SEE YOU NOW, we speak with nurse scientist Camille Burnett about how nurses are in a unique position in their communities to screen, access, intervene, and meet people where they are—particularly responding to intimate partner violence. Even in the middle of a pandemic nurses and neighbors are looking out for one another and finding ways to make sure people are physically and emotionally protected.
