AARC member, Kaitlyn Kaufman, RRT, was recently interviewed by WLWT 5 News about her experiences on the front lines of COVID-19. For a year now Kaufman has been at the bedside of COVID-19 patients.

“The most difficult part was building a relationship with these COVID positive patients and then that one day you’d walk back into work and they weren’t there,” Kaufman said.
