The CDC has issued new federal guidelines to combat burnout and mental health issues among healthcare workers as part of their Impact Wellbeing campaign. These guidelines prompt hospitals to assess their operations and create a 12-month plan to enhance staff wellbeing, addressing critical issues such as staffing shortages exacerbated by the pandemic. Local healthcare professionals, like Dr. Dustin Arnold from UnityPoint Health St. Luke's Hospital, emphasize the importance of staying connected and utilizing available mental health resources. The guidelines also advocate for healthcare workers to openly discuss their mental health, underscoring the necessity of self-care alongside patient care.
