“As the next COVID-19 variant hits our country, I feel a renewed sense of urgency. We need to move faster to invest in an infrastructure that protects our nation’s health care workforce before we lose more nurses, doctors, and other care team members. Every day they risk their own safety for ours and our loved ones. It is time to reimagine safety and take action to make lasting change. That means investing in new policies, processes, resources, and solutions that ease the burden of team members and safeguard their physical, emotional, and psychological wellbeing. It means coming together as a nation and recognizing that health care is an essential infrastructure and that the people who work in health care are national assets and that their safety and wellbeing matters. We cannot afford to lose another nurse, physician, or frontline care team member.”
Bridget Duffy is an internal medicine physician and health care executive.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “End the trauma, stop health care’s great resignation, and protect care teams now.”
