Hotline staffed by psychiatrists helps coronavirus doctors in distress
from NBC News
The calls to the Physician Support Line often begin with an apology from a desperate doctor. "They will say something like 'I'm sorry for bothering you with this,'" said Dr. Mona Masood, who with the help of four other psychiatrists launched the hotline last month to help doctors deal with the stress of combating the coronavirus crisis. "Then they will talk about the patients they've treated, the anxiety of going to work and not having the proper PPE [personal protective equipment], about feeling overwhelmed and not feeling like they have the support of the health care system," Masood said.
