Survey says health workers will abandon posts in a pandemic

Image
This is not good news!

"Healthcare workers will desert their posts in droves in a pandemic, unless the safety and psychological issues they face are addressed. So say surveys of doctors, nurses and other staff, such as lab techs, secretaries and porters, from around the world.

The worst predictions are for the UK, where as few as 15 per cent of workers would show up in a pandemic (BMC Public Health, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2458-9-142)."

Apparently, 60-80% of healthcare workers in Australia will show up to work.

  1. I wonder if there is any evidence of this during the recent H1N1 (Swine Flu) scare. I'm guessing that despite the crazy media storm, the people who were truly informed (i.e. health care workers) were not scrambling for the doors.
