It’s Not Burnout, It’s Moral Injury

[embedded content]

It’s time we stopped with the victim shaming … and started calling it like it is.

So many of us in healthcare feel overwhelmed, demoralized, exhausted, cynical, afraid, and alone. It has to be our fault, right? We’re not resilient enough, we don’t work hard enough, we’re not efficient enough, we’re not good enough people to be taking care of others. Hell, we can’t even seem to take care of ourselves, let alone everyone else. We’re “burned out,” they tell us.

What if we’re all wrong? What if it’s not us, it’s them? A broken system destroying idealistic, good people en masse. A crisis.
