Please note:


  • Some of the photographs shown were taken prior to the pandemic, so caregivers are not wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). Today at Cleveland Clinic, all caregivers are required to wear face masks. Full PPE is also worn as necessary.
  • This video contains footage that was filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic. We now follow protocols (including social distancing, masking and face shields) to protect our patients and caregivers.
