Ivan Giacomel has been one of our psychologist at the Policlinico San Matteo Hospital in Pavia since a couple of weeks. He’s especially involved in the Infected unit, where he is supporting the medical and health care staff, as well as some patients. It is a tough situation: every day around 4 patients pass away, despite the tireless efforts of doctors and nurses.
Being next to them is important, just like to support closely people affected by the Coronavirus. Besides the psychological support, Ivan also acts as a bridge between patients and families, since they cannot meet each other.
Delivering messages, from one side to the other, helps people, by making them feel less apart from each other. Unfortunately, not all stories have a happy ending, but we try at least to give some support, as Ivan tells us in the video…
