Millie Grooms understands the importance of being essential during pandemic

Twenty-three years ago, Millie Grooms took the oath to be a nurse.
She knew at the time that she would be put in situations that would test her but nothing like COVID-19.
“We have had bad flu seasons but nothing compared to the COVID-19 and the challenges we have to face daily,” she said.
Grooms has been at CareSouth Carolina for 17 years, where she is a nursing technical advisor. New hires come to her for training.
With her, they learn about CareSouth policies and procedures. The fundamental things are taught in nursing school but one of the main things taught by Grooms is electronic medical records. 
“Everything now is put in the computer,” she said. 
Grooms went into nursing because of her love for helping others. 
She has seen many changes in the medical field such as telehealth medicine.
The pandemic has highlighted the importance of nurses and health care workers.
Grooms said she has learned about what essential means and being on the front lines.
