Melissa Thomas Scott, a Georgia nurse, reveals she regrets her decision to quit her job after being assigned to the COVID-19 positive ward at her hospital. The mother-of-four went viral last week after she ranted as an act of frustration and desperation.

The hospital is the most-impacted hospital in the state, with more than 350 patients of the highly-contagious virus.

REGRETTING HER DECISION

Speaking to Tamron Hall on IG Live, Melissa, who is also a breast cancer survivor, explained that her rant was a result of her reacting "out of stress." As she's been a nurse for only three years, Scott admitted that she wished she handled the situation differently.

"I worked hard for my nursing degree, of course I don't want to just give up nursing and I love where I work. I doubt they are going to let me come back and I do regret how I handled it."

HER BREAKING POINT

After finding out that she was about to be sent to the ward with COVID-19 patients, she walked out of the Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Georgia. The hospital is the most-impacted hospital in the state, with more than 350 patients of the highly-contagious virus.

Ultimately, she revealed that at that moment, her children and her life mattered to her more, especially with her husband working out of state. Moore expressed how concerned she was to return to her kids after a shift risking potential exposure. It was too much to bear.

The entire world was put to a standstill because of the Coronavirus pandemic, and it's been a difficult time for frontline workers who are trying to combat it. Recently, Queen Elizabeth decided to speak out about the pandemic and asked communities to work as one.

"Many of us will need to find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that loved ones are safe. I am certain we are up to that challenge. You can be assured that my family and I stand ready to play our part."

The 93-year-old made sure to thank all scientists, medical practicioners, and those in the emergency and public services for their steadfast commitment to their countries during these uncertain times.
