The notation “Staff, stuff, space, and systems.” tends to be used as a country begins to prep for disasters. More room can be made by wedging an extra bed , or refurbishing another building. M ore items, more materials and more equipment can be brought. New supply lines can be found and operating systems can be rebooted. Doctors can not be created, educated, or retrofitted from other professions. Health-care providers and personnel can not be conjured up to treat COVID patients. It takes the doctors at least 11 years after high school to train in the medical field. At least four years for nurses. It takes techs years, or months.
Throughout 2003, 44 percent of all cases occurred throughout health care workers at the SARS outbreak in Toronto, Canada. The first four of the12 COVID-19 patients in Arkansas have been health-care professionals. The American College of Emergency Physicians recently announced that there were two ER doctors with COVID-19. Around 3,000 health care staff had been diagnosed in China, and 22 have died in their endeavour to treat COVID patients
A significant practical and ethical question about the COVID-19 pandemic looming in the minds of medical personnel: How much risk do health workers have to take? Or, more bluntly: how many of them are going to die before they decide to leave their jobs? Unless the nation does significantly enough to provide them with the tools they require to do their job safely, to guarantee them that they will be looked after if they fall sick, and provides a measure of protection for their families, the country risks losing them.
Hospitals must have the appropriate services to protect personnel that treat COVID patients— not only PPE (personal protective equipment), but also training, environmental controls and spread-prevention policies and procedures.
Sacrificing providers in difficult circumstances isn’t what’s best for society. When health care providers risk their life, then there is a mutual obligation — the concept of fairness — that government, employers and hospitals keep them healthy and ensure they are treated equally, whether they live, get sick or die.
