Orthopaedic nursing and the COVID19 pandemic: the first few months
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractAt the time of writing (early June 2020), the COVID19 pandemic has affected almost every aspect of life in every part of the globe. This frightening disease has devastated families, communities, and society. Despite this, the hard work and astounding adaptability of healthcare organisations and their staff has been making headlines everywhere. The planning, alterations to existing systems, new rules and guidelines and managing staff and patient expectations has created significant pressure and stress at all levels. The exisiting shortages of nurses and variations in nurses’ working conditions in some countries forms the background to this significant increase in activity. The global economic impact of the pandemic will ultimately lead to a deeper fiscal crisis in many economies that will place additional pressure on future resourcing of healthcare and, perhaps, motivate governments to rethink how healthcare is funded.
