Providence Hospital in northeast D.C. is looking for volunteers to pick up doctors and nurses who can't get to work.

Michelle Johnson, senior director of nursing, says the snow has made it difficult for employees to get in. She's trying to organize volunteers to brave the weather so the hospital is fully staffed. She says they're also organizing rooms for employees to sleep in. Johnson says all they need are a few four-wheel drive vehicles.
