About this comic
The disconnect between the “inside” of hospital nursing during COVID—budget cuts, patient isolation, the pressures of under-staffing—and the “outside” of care—the Black Lives Matter protests, the work of street medics, the urgency of the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest—expose, for one nurse, “the contradiction that was always there about what care work can be and what it is in a hospital setting.”
