Heroes Work Here: Kelsey Ramsingh, Medical Surgical Telemetry Nurse

Kelsey Ramsingh, RN, a Medical Surgical Telemetry nurse, talks about her experience as a frontline nurse, and how grateful she is for the support she’s received from her teammates, loved ones, and the community.

Members of the Community Medical Center team in Toms River have been tirelessly caring for patients, and one another, as they respond to the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout it all, they have responded with strength, skill, and compassion, and shown who they truly are – heroes.


Here I am, the frontline, taking care of these people that are so sick with this virus, so it’s still mind-blowing, it really is. I think the moment that really sticks with me the most would probably be like, how much we’ve all become a family through it all. Without the support that I’ve gotten from even outside, it’s been unbelievable. Between the police officers, the firefighters, my family, my friends, we’ve all just stuck together through it all because it’s – it’s so tragic about what we’ve seen and what we’ve gone through and losing patients – it’s really hard. And you know, you go home, and that sticks with you, and I wonder if I did enough that day. I wake up wondering if I did enough, ‘can I come back? Can I do more?’ So I go home and I’m like, wondering like, I always want to come back and do something a little more.
