One in three health professionals considered giving up

One in three health professionals considered giving up

“We had a patient who was really young. It was the first of the youngest patients that we had that passed away,” Rufener said. “Seeing someone that young pass away from COVID was hard both emotionally and mentally.” Craig Rufener from Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa has experienced this. Front line workers at Banner Health are sharing their experiences and how they got through.

A year into the pandemic, this is a common story among health care workers. More health care workers are reporting serious burnout. “The past year has obviously been challenging, especially over the Christmas holidays, just seeing so much suffering,” said Kaleen Holmes, who works at Banner Medical Center in Phoenix.

A Washington Post/Kaiser Family Foundation Poll found one-in-three health care workers have considered quitting the industry. More than half of health care workers say they are burned out. Six in 10 say the stress has impacted their mental health. And that takes a toll.

“When I come in in the morning, if I can make one person smile, I know I can make a difference in the world,” Stanek said. “And one person can really make that difference.” Source He started making bracelets from guitar strings and giving them out.

Former firefighter Steve Stanek works at Banner Boswell Medical Center in Sun City, Ariz. “It’s been important to kind of pull together as a team,” Holmes said. “Supporting one another and just trying to get each other through it mentally has been extremely important.”
