 Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts

Current Medical Personnel Needs:

There is a need for Respiratory Therapists to support patients on vents. This would entail 12-hour shifts around the clock for as many days as needed (no more than 5) until the patients can safely return to their homes once the storm has passed. The State will take RTs on a day-to-day schedule if that’s what is needed.

If available and interested in helping, please contact Amy Ikerd, Program Manager, Emergency Preparedness, Duke Raleigh Hospital, amy.ikerd@duke.edu, O) 919.954.3908, C) 919.623.8586
