COVID-19 Story Tip: Front-Line Worker Story: Sandra Zaeh, M.D. — COVID-19 from diagnosis to recovery

05/19/2020

It seems like there will never be enough “thank you’s” for the incredible doctors, nurses technicians and support staff members who are working around the clock to help patients with this dangerous disease. It is their dedication, determination and spirit that allow Johns Hopkins to deliver the promise of medicine.

Sandy Zaeh is a pulmonary critical care fellow at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Zaeh’s training experience at Johns Hopkins is far from usual. She’s now taken on the intense responsibility of caring for patients with some of the worst cases of COVID-19. However, these trying times have offered a unique opportunity: to follow her patients from the intensive care unit (ICU) through their recovery. She’s a member of the post-acute COVID-19 team that helps recovering patients navigate their return to everyday life. “It is unbelievable to see a patient who has been fighting for their life for weeks to recover enough to go home,” says Zaeh.

Sandy Zaeh is available for interviews with the press.
