Staff safety

Recommended Posts

World Patient Safety Day on Thursday 17 September this year focuses on staff safety. In her latest blog, Eve Mitchell writes about the new impact COVID-19 is having on the mental health and wellbeing of healthcare staff: compassion fatigue has resulted in frontline staff now having to absorb the anger of the public, patients, and their carers.

If you have been affected by the issues raised in this blog and want your voice to be heard, please share by replying to the topic below. If you prefer to remain anonymous, please email info@pslhub.org and we will ensure confidentiality.

Let’s use this community hub to identify examples where staff are experiencing challenge from frustrated and angry patients and families. We need to highlight this issue so that health and social care leaders, policy makers and politicians understand theses issues and respond to patient concerns and ensure that staff are protected.
