A travel nurse who worked in an El Paso, Texas, hospital overrun by COVID-19 patients recently posted an emotional video on Facebook Live describing the horrific conditions under which the sickest patients were cared for.

Lawanna Rivers, a 44-year-old registered nurse with 13 years of experience who completed an assignment treating COVID-19 patients at University Medical Center in El Paso, said the sickest patients were put in a “pit” where doctors refused to enter, and left to die.

“That assignment there broke me,” Rivers said, in the video posted Nov. 7.
