As after a mass shooting, COVID medical workers need mental health support

I am sitting with my patient in his room on Facetime with his family.  He is COVID positive and has suffered irreparable heart damage as a result of the virus.  He has been provided comfort measures only and will most likely die before the end of my shift.  It is only 9:30 a.m. and already two of my patients on my assignment have passed away from COVID, and another one will get intubated by noon.
