PVH Nurses and our Community,

Below is a link to "Inside Petaluma".  It is a local radio show that airs every Friday from 11am until 1pm on FM 103.3.  PVH Nurses were asked to join them this Friday to discuss what is happening in PVH and what Nurses are dealing with around COVID19 and how we felt about the possibility of Providence purchasing our hospital. If you are local, you can of course listen live on Friday.  If you are not local, you can listen in by clicking on the link and if you miss the broadcast for some reason, you can still listen to the archived interview. They are logged chronologically which means our interview will pop up first.

Please forward the link or this email to your friends, families and neighbors. The more people who hear this message the better.

We asked, you listened! This was an article that appeared in The Argus Courier, written by the son of one of our very own PVH emergency room nurses. Thank you Koben!


"My mom is an emergency room nurse, and the hospitals nationwide are facing severe mask shortages. As a community, we need to recognize that it is in our best interest to prevent our doctors and nurses from contracting COVID-19. This is a call to donate N95 masks you may have to the healthcare workers in our area.

In these uncertain times, looking to countries where COVID-19 has been spreading for longer can give us insight into what to expect in our future. If this is any guide, one thing should be abundantly clear. In countries like Italy, healthcare systems are being completely overwhelmed.

Even with an optimistic view towards the impact of social distancing, healthcare resources and staff will be the bottleneck our community faces. Healthcare workers are on the front lines of this pandemic. If they get sick, the already understaffed hospitals will be even more strained.

If this reaches a sufficient pitch, difficult choices will have to be made. The hard truth here is that these masks work, that is why it is so critical for healthcare workers to have them. IT is also why, in a pandemic, they are the last thing people want to give away.

Even if you can donate just a few, however, you will have an impact. Preventing a healthcare worker from contracting COVID-19 is probably one of the highest impact, most altruistic actions you can take right now. We all want there to be an abundance of nurses and doctors if we or our loved ones come down with the virus; giving N95 masks, along with social distancing, are the actions we can take right now to ensure our healthcare systems remains robust.

Please go to for drop-off locations. Thank you!"
