“The COVID-19 pandemic has been raging in the United States for over two years. Health care workers across the country have been chronically pushed to their limits as we navigate difficult situations on a daily basis. The advent of the COVID-19 vaccine, although a powerful tool in our crusade against the pandemic, has created a new branch of emotions for health care workers towards unvaccinated patients or those with vaccine hesitancy. The empathy we are often expected to have without fail can be difficult to maintain in the face of these new challenges. Nonetheless, COVID-19 persists. We owe it to ourselves and our patients to find ways to deal with these complex emotions.”
Masood R. Mohammed is an emergency medicine resident.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “How to cope with pandemic fatigue.”
