Infectious disease outbreaks like COVID-19 can be especially challenging for health care workers, the unsung heroes responsible for saving countless lives. HAP’s clinical staff have provided some tried-and-true tips and reminders to help off-duty health care workers unwind and recharge.
Take care of your body
Take care of your mind
Take care of your gear
Remember: It is possible that someone may react negatively after learning that you work in health care. This is an opportunity to remind them they are safe and that appropriate precautions are being taken to protect everyone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website has a guide to reduce stigma. It’s on all of us to build understanding and be good stewards of calm, fact-based public health information.
Thank you to health care workers for all that you do during COVID-19 and every day.
