At Mass. General, dying coronavirus patients don't have to pass alone

CommonWealth continues an ongoing discussion with a Mass. General emergency-room doctor: Patients for whom there is no longer hope are allowed to have a family member with them; the hospital now has about four times as many Latino patients as usual due to Covid-19; and about a third of all patients at the hospital are now there because of Covid-19. Also more than 200 hospital staffers have tested positive.

Because they have a sufficient amount of PPE. This was done through proper planning and getting that Battelle sterilization machine for N95 mask reuse.

It's tragic, but having a family member nearby means one less set of protective gear for a doctor or nurse, one less shift.
