I have been leading from the middle with lots of empathy, but I need to communicate better that I am near retirement! I have turned over all my functions to others over past 3 years and retired but not without being misunderstood for my covid indecision

Dr. Jo-Ann Leavey
Hi Hollie! Jo-Ann Leavey in attendance
As more roles are given to nurses, the doctors start to feel like they are not needed- until there is a complex patient of something happens at 4:55.
So please share your positive attitude, praise, thank you’s with the MD’s and DO’s and avoid power struggles. Especially women at not for profit or in positions that need good problem solving but don’t generate revenue. Please treat us as individuals: ask what would be helpful to us rather than assign without checking in: people need to be able to bail, professionally if working from home is not working for example- think outside the box
The outlets for stress are gone
nurses having to supply a lot more emotional support to patients as visitors are restricted
Dr. Jo-Ann Leavey
People angry, breaking down, crying on the job
Some people were sent home and others continued to work every day and both got the same pay
Dr. Jo-Ann Leavey
interpersonal breakdowns, burnout
PPE and hot flashes!
Most of us have the most stress over the health and well being of the generation(s) before us. A lot of stress about parents and their other health crises in COVID times.
("US" being at my workplace.)
My niece, RN in Columbus, was able to make home made PPE in the first 3 weeks, and RN’s took it on themselves to bleach surfaces with supplies from home. At onset, an administrator, had said “don’t wear masks/ face shields, it will scare the visitors- just before the shut down.
My sister was in the hospital the first week and I had her power of attorney but couldn't see her. My mother fell and I couldn't care for her. My friends husband had a stroke and 2 coworkers got Covid. I spent hours on the phone. I never used facebook before but use it now to connect with people.
I do so much with self care, and have replaced all my normal stuff with new ways of coping- my supervisor mistook my covid stress, loss of family as worthy of denying my clinical privileges in the middle of a pandemic- I was surprised and took it personally, even when I knew it was a misreading of my own grief, and baseline loyalty to my patients— but I let it all go and got out of the toxic culture. Now can take my time to be a community member with therapeutic personality: I am a healer and I help others AND take great care of myself. Nurses who show off their power are demoralizing to those around them
the inability to manage their feelings of burnout is concerning as well
Are there any cultures such as Asian where stoicism and obedience to male elders that are having trouble in the US culture with our tendency to be individualistic and to be skeptical of our leaders. Ambiguity is so hard for people to handle-agree with make this “ the rules for today and likely to change”
Dr. Jo-Ann Leavey
Yes some staff REFUSE to wear masks and don’t seem to care about potentially infecting others. Perhaps a way to displace their internal anger/frustration?
provide her to offer her thoughts without judgement in a safe place...encouraging her not to take the public space to relay her emotion
Help her to identify and talk about her feelings, frustrations and how her behavior may be effecting other. Provide support, encourage her to seek help for herself psychologically.
My husband and I walk outside every day, meditation and controlled breathing
Acknowledge Sally's concern and convey appreciation. Tell her no one has the ability to control the situation but shehas the power to choose how she reacts
Written thank you notes, little unexpected kindness, random acts of appreciation. Ask rather than tell. Admit your own limitations and remain calm: model positive attitude in knowing that I can choose my attitude, who I associate with, vision how I want things to happen and develop allies who share my goals and work together- positive partnership= friend at work. Insist on good training, tools, equipment that you need. Use open questions “How is that for you? what ideas do you have? Avoid ambiguous “Why “ questions that can leave people feeling unheard, un validated
