There was this wonderful ability to collaborate with colleagues around the country as COVID was popping up in different hotspots. I remember being on email streams and calls with colleagues in New York. It was so useful to hear what steps they went through. The nature of medicine generally is to always understand. Let's do a root cause analysis and figure out what we could do even better next time.

When we had very restrictive visitation policies we discovered that video visitation for our patients to be able to connect to their families was a precious gift that we could add to the care system. It was tragic story, after tragic story of folks isolated in hospital rooms, not being able to be with their family.
