Keeping Yourself Safe During COVID-19
Allied health professionals are the backbone of quality patient care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are here to help our travelers in any way we can during this public health crisis.
The CDC has some great resources on keeping yourself and your patients safe during the pandemic and reducing the risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, we also understand that many healthcare professionals are facing higher stress levels during the pandemic due to staffing shortages and increased demand. Our travelers help relieve some of these issues by filling staffing gaps in healthcare facilities across the nation.
However, it’s important to take steps to protect your mental health and prevent burnout. Here are some stress-relieving tips to help you reduce the risk of burnout:
- Try stress-reducing techniques like meditation or deep breathing
- Take care of your physical health with a good diet, exercise, and healthy sleep
- Use days off and time in between assignments to relax and recharge
- Work with your recruiter to design a traveling schedule that allows work-life balance
- Talk to your friends, family, and colleagues, especially if you’re feeling isolated
- Consider talking to a therapist to help with your mental health
