Zoita, Roxana Nicoleta
The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly altered our daily lives and our way of thinking. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on healthcare professionals has undoubtedly been strong especially for those who have been the frontline of new cases and then supervised the progress of cases in intensive care. The exhaustion of health workers fighting at the forefront amid the Covid-19 pandemic is of great concern. The impact is not only related to the increased workload but also to the fear that the disease may affect workers themselves and will result in their families being affected as well. Also, with a combination that protocols are constantly changing, there is a lack of protective equipment, training, but there is a rapid deterioration of patients who are ill, there are several factors that lead to an increase in burnout syndrome. Burnout syndrome is defined as a prolonged response to chronic, emotional, and interpersonal stressors in the workplace and is analyzed into three dimensions of exhaustion, cynicism, and occupational inefficiency. . As there is an increase in the phenomenon, it is important that hospital administrations and the state itself intervene effectively to reducing it. Health professionals need to work in a healthy workplace, to deliver their services more efficiently and in general in the performance of the business.
