As quarantine measures begin to re-escalate in cities around the nation, front-line healthcare workers have been confronting the resurgence of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases. These last several months have taken a toll on the fundamental component of our nation’s healthcare system. From our EMTs, nurses, to doctors – we rely heavily on these dedicated individuals as we continue to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
However, ‘front-line worker’ extends past the traditional setting of hospitals treating patients. At Integrity Laboratories, our lab technicians and on-site specialists process thousands of samples each day. Around the United States, these hidden workers must exhibit intense care so that each sample remains uncontaminated and safely tested. Behind the scenes, technicians are insulated from patient exposure but entrusted with these samples to help save lives. From patient to provider, from specimen to transport, our laboratories work closely with front-line workers in health systems to ensure each sample is treated with care.
Together, they work tirelessly to keep us safe, placing themselves at incredible risk along the way.
It is estimated that anywhere from 10-25% of COVID-19 cases are recognized as front-line healthcare workers, but their dedication is unwavering.
Our front-line workers keep our communities safe and on the mend during this global pandemic. Now, more than ever, it is important to establish community ties between the healthcare and health-tech industries. Working to care for patients and provide the answers they need isn’t just the responsibility of one field individually. Instead, it is the responsibility of the heath-tech and biotechnology industries to stand with resolve and support our healthcare system workers.
At Integrity Laboratories, we are committed to establishing a working camaraderie among the healthcare systems that we connect with. Solidifying these ties improves our ability to promptly respond to changes in patient needs and to provide our front-line workers access to the information they require for best-in-class care, to all.
We wish to extend a special thank you to all healthcare workers on the front-line taking risks to care for patients confronting a coronavirus infection, and to those working to relieve the bottlenecking occurring in patients with other medical conditions. We do not doubt it is a difficult time, but we are devoted to working with you to guarantee your lab results are given the same individual care you provide to each patient. We view each sample as a direct reflection of our dedication to your inspiring care. We stand by you during these trying times and extend our gratitude to you and our support.
