Dr. Daniela Lamas, a pulmonary and critical-care doctor, says she’s had to make a lot of changes in the way she treats patients. Aside from needing to wear a full body of personal protective equipment and worry about having enough machines, it has also changed the way she interacts with patients and family members in the ICU.

“The necessity of wearing a mask, of wearing gloves, of wearing a gown, of wearing eye protection, that is quite, literally, a barrier,” Dr. Lamas says. “And so sadly, I think this has changed our bedside manner and not for the better.”
