CBS News issued a “clarification" after promoting a tweet about an ICU nurse who claimed she quit her job because she and other nurses weren't provided with face masks.
Imaris Vera earlier this week posted a video tearfully explaining she quit her job at a hospital after she wasn't provided a mask to wear outside patients' rooms.
CBS promoted Vera's video in a tweet that garnered nearly 55,000 likes and 25,000 retweets.
But, after Senator Bernie Sanders retweeted CBS's story about Vera, she posted a reply to Sanders acknowledging she had indeed been provided with a mask.
"We were each assigned 1 N95 mask around the Nurses station or Halls. Which I came prepared with," she tweeted on Tuesday.
CBS tweeted: "The hospital, Northwestern Medicine, acknowledged that Imaris Vera had quit her job, but referred CBS News to Vera as to the details why."
In a Facebook post on March 26, Vera admitted she suffers from anxiety and bi-polar depression and was "feeling a heavy toll with transitioning back into the ICU" after being out of work for one year.
Vera quit after working just one day on the job.
