BDN quotes Saber in report on nursing staff, students helping during pandemic

The Bangor Daily News quoted Deborah Saber, an assistant professor in the University of Maine’s School of Nursing, in a report on Maine university nursing staff and students helping out during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in nursing homes. Saber also works in research at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, and signed up through both her employers to be on the roster for surge staffing in case her services as a registered nurse are needed, the article states. “I’m in a place also in my life where I can give more now than when people have small children, because you have to worry about the children getting infected,” she said. “It’s not without risk, but I’m comfortable going in and helping where I need to be, and that’s basically what drove me to sign up.” WGME (Channel 13) carried the BDN article.
