For many of us #GeriPT's, treatment looks VERY different from what we are used to.

Sicker, younger, highly contagious patients, changing mindsets, scaling back treatment plans -  or getting pulled from "comfortable and familiar" and being sent to a faster paced, less comfortable setting.

It's a whole new ball game -  or is it?

Brush up on your pulmonary skills, strap on your N95 ( and gown, hair cover, face shield, booties, gloves ) and listen in while two East Coast therapists (spoiler  -  it's Tali and Nicole) who don't (usually) work in acute care talk about what they are seeing clinically.

**This was recorded 4/4/2020 and we're sure something has changed  since then. Life comes at you fast.**
