Abstract

Maintaining Mental Health among Medical Staff during Covid-19 Pandemic

In December 2019, the coronavirus was discovered in Wuhan, China. In 2020, the World Health Organization announced the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus. The pandemic greatly affected public health around the world, particularly impacting frontline medical staff. The stress and concerns of the medical staff were exacerbated by limited knowledge about the virus, the need to care for large numbers of confirmed cases, the fear of affecting their families, and especially the shortage of personal protective equipment. Through the actions of Taiwan’s hospitals and government – such as, “assembling a mental health task force,” “increasing transparency in information and communication,” “providing educational training,” “establishing physical and mental health assessment mechanisms,” “providing mental health services,” etc., the initiatives were able to reduce the pressure and mental burden of frontline medical staff. This helped minimize the impact of the pandemic on hospitals and helped them effectively overcome the pandemic crisis.
