Covid Compassion Fatigue

Haven’t posted for quite a while as we all have been suffering from Covid fatigue.  I’m wondering if we former flexies have any different perspective than “regular” doctors on the topic.  I’m having a very difficult time caring for unvaccinated patients as I really want to blame them for their own illness.  In my hospital we have closed down the Pediatric Ward so that it could be filled with Covid patients.  Now if you have a sick kid that needs hospitalization in my county you have to get an expensive ambulance ride to Orlando over an hour away – even for something as simple as phototherapy for neonatal jaundice.  I want to blame these unvaccinated people for causing harm to the rest of our community.

How do the rest of you all feel?

Tired M.D.
