“I quit! I care about the patients and all but my kids and my life, they matter, they come first,” Melissa Thomas Scott declared in her video. 

Thomas Scott, a breast cancer survivor and mom of four, made the difficult decision after being assigned to a floor where patients are being tested for coronavirus inside a Georgia hosptial. 

"My manager sent me to a floor that's being tested for Corona. She knows my health history. She knows all of this,” she said in her video. “I told her my kids don't have anybody to go to while they're here. I can't send my kids away like everybody else. I'm done, I'm leaving."
