Reasons Why Staff Are Quitting The Medical Field (Video)



I watched a cable news program, and they talked about how doctors and nurses were quitting because of the Coronavirus. But I personally think that the Coronavirus just exposed what hospital staff has been feeling for years. In this video, I breakdown what I think these feelings are.

  • Not enough staff
  • Bullying by coworkers
  • Abusive patients and family members
  • Not enough PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
  • Coronavirus Vaccine
One thing that I forgot to add in the video was burnout. Burnout is so real in the medical field. There is a part of you loves the medical field, but your mind and body say enough.

Staffing Issues and the Unit Secretary (Video)


There are three reasons why there is a staffing issue in hospitals. 

  1. There is a large segment of secretaries who are nearing retirement age.
  2. There is a large segment of secretaries who are working as a secretary while they are in nursing school, etc.
  3. Hospital administration feels that all we do is answer the telephone. 
In the video above, I will discuss all of this.
