Sam works in janitorial services.
“I don’t feel as in the loop as other departments. We don’t get updates. I get my updates from the news.
We get everything ready for patient care. We prevent exposures.
You can’t have a surgery without us getting the room ready. You can’t have a clinic or ER visit without us cleaning the space between patients. We now use bleach in COVID rooms. It takes 10 to 15% longer to do our job in COVID spaces.
I worked as a screener during SARS but this is different. From A to Z, this has affected my life. My wife was laid off. My job has changed.”
