BROCKTON A Brockton nurse, burnout from COVID led to the launch of a new business, Drip Queen Wellness, which changed her life forever.
Latifah Gomes, 29, has always wondered what entrepreneurship was like, but as a busy traveling nurse, it was just a distant dream.
Gomes was aimlessly scrolling Instagram one day and found a nurse with a million-dollar business serving her community’s IVs.
Gomes thought to himself, I could do this.
The young businesswoman flew to North Carolina to meet the nurse and take her classes, which was a significant investment. Gomes spent $5,000 to take the course and learned the ins and outs of the IV business.
Once certified, she went home and started creating a business plan. You have all the requirements to start your new business, including liability insurance and finding an attorney and medical director.
Gomes works under a medical director who helps her with live orders, documentation, and submitting orders for a doctor’s approval. The medical director is a nurse with several years of medical experience.

Gomes also offers vitamin B12, immunity, and quick fat-burning injections.
The best part about this service is that Gomes will come to your home and fix everything while you sit back in comfort and relax.
Gomes’ Nursing Experience
As easy as it seemed to create this type of service, it wasn’t a walk in the park.
I think the hardest part about starting a business was believing in myself and taking that leap of faith and doing it. Overall the process was smooth. Taking that class made everything a lot easier for me, Gomes said.
The registered nurse had to dig deep to find the motivation to be her best self. What kickstarted the entrepreneurial journey was the mistreatment nurses faced post-COVID, she said.
During COVID, nurses were highly praised and loved by all, but when COVID regulations were lifted and people got better, the love went away, she said.
We were kind of glorified maids, and don’t get me wrong, I love being a nurse and I love taking care of my patients, but I had to put my mental health first, Gomes said.

Gomes recalls long 12-hour shifts and coming home absolutely exhausted from work and abuse, and overall his mental health was failing, he said.
I knew I wouldn’t be able to do that forever, Gomes said.
At one point, only nurses were entering the rooms of COVID patients. No one else, not even the cleaning crew came in, Gomes said.
The flowers nurses received from the world during COVID slowly died out, but Gomes won’t let that stop her from caring for patients.
Now Gomes can care for people differently by providing hydration and a unique care option.
I love actively watching my patients improve. This has to be my favorite part of being a nurse. In my last ER job, I didn’t get to see him often. Once they got out of the emergency room, they went to another ward. At least now I can watch someone feel better physically and see how the therapy gives them energy and vitality, Gomes said.
Gomes is excited to bring hydration and care to Brockton. He hopes to educate people about health and wellness as they embark on the journey of becoming a better version of themselves.
“You only have one body. You have to take care of it,” Gomes said.
Intravenous therapy hydrates your body in ways that drinking plain water can’t, she said.
Gomes is currently working full time on his new venture and has quit his job at a local hospital.
He’s taking on new clients for IV and injection services.
