Survey: 9 out of 10 nurses concerned about COVID-19, PPE

from Florence Health

Healthcare workers fear going back to work for lack of protection from COVID-19, and nine out of 10 say access to personal protective equipment is a top concern, according to a new national survey of nurses. The American Nurses Association released new findings from a survey of more than 32,000 nurses nationwide who are on the frontlines of the coronavirus disease pandemic. The results echo ongoing concerns about the shortage of protective equipment for nurses, staffing and training. More than a quarter of those surveyed said they have been “forced to create” their own surgical masks. Only half of nurses surveyed have had adequate training to conduct COVID-19 testing, and 68 percent say they are working without the necessary nurse staffing. more
