Wentworth-Douglass Hospital

DOVER – Critical care nurses at Wentworth-Douglass recently released a “thank you” video to express their appreciation to colleagues and the community, for helping to get them through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The six-minute video contains detailed and personal stories about what it was like to work on the frontlines during the height of the 2020 COVID-19 surge at Wentworth-Douglass.

While it was important for the nurses to express their gratitude, the experience of creating the video ended up being quite therapeutic for the nurses, as it empowered them to share experiences that some had been keeping to themselves, according to Michele Clark BSN, RN, nurse manager of the hospital’s Critical Care Unit.

“We know that storytelling is very therapeutic and is actually used in PTSD and stress workshops,” Clark said.
