As an intensive care nurse at IU Health Methodist Hospital Morgan Krohne is faced daily with the challenges of caring for the sickest patients.
By IU Health Senior Journalist T.J. Banes, firstname.lastname@example.org
She started at IU Health University Hospital working in the surgical intensive care unit. Now Morgan Krohne works in the resource pool at IU Health Methodist. Day in and day out she cares for patients who are not only sick, but also lonely.
During National Nurses Week May 6-12, hospitals and healthcare centers around the country honor nurses like Krohne. The American Nurses Association has chosen the theme for this year’s celebration as “Compassion, Expertise, Trust.” The celebration traditionally kicks off the birthday of Florence Nightingale – a pioneer in nursing. As the profession has evolved, so have the technologies and challenges – including the historic COVID-19 pandemic.
“Going into college, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to whether medical school or nursing, but after shadowing a nurse and working in the emergency department I found a love for the bedside care,” said Krohne. “Getting to know the patients, seeing their progress and being able to connect with them throughout their stay has been rewarding.”
The most difficult part of her career during COVID-19 has been the worry inside and outside the hospital.
“I think like most, we worry that we will bring this home to our loved ones. We do our best to stay level headed and positive,” said Krohne. “While some days are easier than others, it does stay in the back of your mind. I hope that sooner rather than later we can hug those close to us again.”
Like many nurses, Krohne’s life celebrations have been temporarily been put on hold. She became engaged three months ago and her great grandmother recently marked a milestone birthday.
“Not being able to see my family has been super tough. My great grandma just turned 99 and not being able to hug her or celebrate with her really tears me up,” said Krohne. “I miss my friends and family a lot and while that is heartbreaking, they have been nothing but supportive and shown me unconditional love through all of this. My heart breaks for my patients and their families. This has been a very trying time and I am so lucky to work with such incredible people that not only lift each other but work tirelessly to lift out patients up as well.”
