COVID & Compassion Fatigue



As patient census begins to drop, healthcare organizations and our communities attempt to recover and reflect on what will be our new normal. Meanwhile, our front-line nurses are facing a mental health crisis of their own: compassion fatigue.

In this webinar panel discussion, Florida Atlantic University Dean of Nursing, Safiya George, and Cross Country Healthcare’s Chief Clinical Officer, Hank Drummond, led a panel discussion on combating compassion fatigue. Participants discussed how nurse professionals can identify the signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and compassion fatigue in themselves and each other.
