Pandemic Overshadowed Burnout

Submitted by on June 1, 2020 – 2:02 am
Pandemic Overshadowed Burnout

Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, physician burnout was a daily topic in the industry and outside it. Each day seemed to bring another headline about the crisis of physician burnout. Did it go away or just get shoved off the headlines by another crisis? The New England Journal of Medicine brought this information to our attention in their article, “Physician Burnout, Interrupted.”

The issue had been simmering for years and was brought to a boil by mounting changes in the health care system, most prominently the widespread implementation of the electronic health records (EHRs). It is safe to say that burnout has not disappeared but being the professionals that most of them are, they have set aside their personal needs and self-care to save dying patients from an unknown predator. Doctors, nurses  and other health care professionals have traditionally viewed their work as a calling. Rest assured, the burnout is likely to rear its ugly head post-pandemic like a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
