A new study out of Japan shows that healthcare workers are at increased risk for burnout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers surveyed a variety of frontline workers in a large hospital’s emergency room, ICUs, and other departments, asking about symptoms like emotional exhaustion and feelings of decreased accomplishment at work. They found that more than 40% of nurses and more than 30% of radiological technologists and pharmacists met the criteria for burnout. This study suggests the importance of physician and hospital leaders and peers recognizing the dedicated work of these healthcare professionals and expressing gratitude and support.
