Northwestern Memorial Hospital's 'Old Do Chicago
Northwestern Memorial Hospital's 'Old Dolls' uses their decades of experience to treat COVID-19 patients
Coronavirus is slowly becoming an evil army, and fighting with it seems like a war. In this war, doctors and health care workers are those strong and brave soldiers, who are struggling with all their capacity to win this battle against COVID-19. As there is no approved vaccine, all the patient's recovery depends on the experience of nurses and doctors.
At Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the experience collected in decades is packed in a group of nurses, affectionately known as "Old Dolls."
Two nurses of this group, Pascalo, and Colllanto, are working in the facility from the very start of their career. Both started together at Northwestern and slowly turned into friends from colleagues, and now they are family.
"We've all had children together, we've been through deaths of parents and siblings," Pascalo said. "We do lean on each other a lot."
The Old Dolls are themselves on a high risk of infection, but when they were offered options of other units, they refused it as they believe that their experience is essential and should be used to fight COVID-19.
Pascalo became a floor mom and guides all the new nurses to make better decisions. Her Daughter Jessica DeBrocke also works at Northwestern Memorial Hospital as a nurse, and she loves to work with her mom and is always guided by her mom. She is very concerned about her mother's health but also has confidence in her work.

Northwestern University professor developed a device to symptoms of COVID-19
Northern University is closed for students, but the work is continuously going on in the engineering labs.
Northwestern University Professor John Rogers said "It's a soft-skin compatible device, it goes on the body much like a band-aid,"
Rogers helped in developing a band-aid sized wireless device that will track the symptoms of COVID-19, and it is placed right above the collarbone at the center of the neck.
This small device can also track the development of fever and find if a patient is responding to a treatment or not.
According to Rogers, this device is being used in healthcare workers to find any early symptoms. This device relies on symptoms only and can't determine whether a person is positive or negative. But even this much information is proving to be very helpful for doctors and researchers.
This device is currently being used on 25 workers and patients at the Northwestern Hospital ICU and the Shirley Ryan ability lab. Rogers plans to double this number by the end of this week.
Anyone could use it, and after wearing it for 12 hours, it is kept on the charger, and all the data is automatically downloaded and uploaded to the cloud using iPad.
Northwestern is partnering with Shirley Ryan Ability Lab in developing this device in large quantities.

The total number of flights flying from or to Long Island' Mac Arthur Airport had reduced to four every day, which is an 89% drop in numbers after the pandemic had started to spread.
According to officials, the new device which is installed in MacArthur airport around terminals can have many benefits for safety and sanitation.
The device is named CASPR-Continuous Air and Surface Pathogen Reduction – and it kills 99.9% pathogens present in the air and the surfaces nearby. According to MacArthur Airport Commissioner Shelley LaRose-Arken, this device will be useful in bringing back passengers and create a belief of safety amongst them.
CASPR converts oxygen and moisture into hydrogen peroxide, which, when released in the air and on the surfaces, kills any pathogens present.
"It's not new, it's proven in the medical environment, and there's data behind it," said airport consultant Edward Shelswell-White. According to him, hospitals still use such devices, and levels of hydrogen peroxide are not harmful.
LaRose-Arken said that MacArthur is the first airport to use this technology, and shortly other bigger airports can also use this to increase the number of passengers. Eight units were installed in the terminals and cost roughly $10,000.
