Hero of the Day : Brooklyn doctor brings calm during 80-hour weeksDr. Nermeen Botros has been clocking more than 80 hours at her Brooklyn hospital every week since the coronavirus crisis began — but the work doesn’t stop when she gets home. As the chief medical resident at Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center in Brownsville, Botros is on call 24/7 for the young residents she oversees.
Some of them need a second opinion, or advice on how to deal with a positive coronavirus patient, Botros told The Post. But some of them are just “scared.” “It’s not only for medical information, it’s because it’s a serious situation for all of us, so many of the residents are scared of the disease, scared of the death,” said Botros, 35, who takes calls as late as 3 a.m. from the apprentices.
“It’s a new situation for them. Everything here is new. The management plan is new, the whole disease and whole virus is new, no one knows exactly the nature of this virus yet so everyone has questions and my job here is to be there for them to answer the questions and help them and support them.” When the first COVID-19 patients started pouring into the hospital a couple of weeks ago, the situation was “overwhelming,” Botros said.
“We didn’t know even the process of the proper testing for those patients, who should we contact, the isolation process and even those placed under investigation, how to manage them,” explained Botros, who was born in Egypt. Many of the residents initially didn’t feel comfortable performing the “risky” COVID-19 test themselves, so Botros took the lead on administering the exams to suspected patients until the others were prepared to do it.
She promises them she can be in the hospital “in no time” if they need her — but it’s not like she leaves much, anyway.Enlarge ImageGabriella Bass Botros has been working six-day weeks. She typically leaves her house around 5 a.m. and doesn’t return until 9 or 10 that night. When she’s not helping residents, she’s sleeping and preparing to do it all over again the next day.
But she said playing such a critical role in the crisis fuels her for the hard work. “It’s very cathartic to me and very healing that at the end of the day, when I go to bed, I feel that I helped the residents, I did my job, I helped my patients to get better. And that’s really, really satisfying for me, and that’s what motivates me to wake up the next day to continue my mission and to continue my role here as a physician,” Botros said.
“It’s priceless to see a patient improving, and it’s priceless to see residents or a co-worker in need, and you help your colleague and your co-residents to overcome their struggles,” she continued. “Making a difference, a small difference on a daily basis, that’s what really makes me happy and accomplished.”
