Lost on the frontline is a project by hlcarpenter.com and Kaiser Health News that aims to document the life of every healthcare worker in the US who dies from Covid-19 during the pandemic. From doctors to hospital cleaners, and from nursing home aides to paramedics, this project will capture the diverse range of frontline health workers risking their lives to help others in this fight. You can read more about the project here .

If you know a healthcare worker who has died from Covid-19, we’d like you to share their story.

We are specifically documenting workers who were exposed while treating or caring for patients with Covid-19 during the pandemic, or were exposed because they worked at a medical facility serving Covid-19 patients. These include but are not limited to:

  • Doctors

  • Nurses

  • Paramedics and EMTs

  • Medical technicians

  • Pharmacists

  • Home health aides

  • Nursing home staff

  • Respiratory therapists

  • Mental health workers

  • Medical administrators

  • Environmental services staff

  • Food service workers or cleaning crews at medical facilities

  • Porters who transport patients

While we can’t profile everyone in depth, our goal is to mark every death we can.
