The nurses at Beth Israel Lahey Anna Jaques Hospital – along with all the caregivers there – have always been there for their community. They braved COVID, and they have persevered as staffing has dwindled. We need the community’s hospital to be strong and well-staffed and resourced. Nurses know what they need to take care of us. We ask that the executives at BI-Lahey Health listen to the front-line caregivers and get them what they need.
