Health care workers say they’re also dealing with burnout. It has been a grueling 17 months, and with another peak in the pandemic approaching, workers are concerned.
“The concerning thing is where do we go now? We’re already short staffed. We’re expecting the peak later in September, early October. So where are these patients going to go? How are we gonna get the staff?”Jenny Renaud, UK HealthCare
On top of that, some workers are missing days because of COVID-19 spreading at their kids’ schools.
