Compassion Fatigue During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The purpose of this research was to explore the possibility of the COVID-19 pandemic leading to an increase in compassion fatigue in nurses. Compassion fatigue is a condition where the afflicted person is not able to empathize with the misfortunes of others, due to mental and physical exhaustion. This lack of compassion can be detrimental in the healthcare field and has been a problem even before the pandemic. A close examination of qualitative and quantitative studies was completed to assess the correlation between the COVID-19 pandemic and levels of compassion fatigue in nurses. It was found that the stressors brought on by the pandemic have left nurses vulnerable to deteriorating mental health and have caused an increased level of compassion fatigue.
