Logo-branded Healthcare Gifts Guide
Supporting the Mental Health of Healthcare Workers
During the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers were at the frontlines of the epidemic and at the forefront of our minds. Doctors, nurses, CNAs, technicians, and all other healthcare workers were working overtime in tense conditions, battling a rapidly-spreading virus, caring for extremely ill patients, and turning away patients’ loved ones because of visitor limitations. As patients flooded in, hospitals and clinics found themselves understaffed: workers were not only coming down with the virus, they were leaving their jobs due to the adverse conditions. The rest of us watched healthcare workers make sacrifices and choose bravery in a fearful time.
Since we’ve never experienced a pandemic like this one before, the world is experiencing effects that we might not have predicted. Life is different now, and for all we know, it might be different in the long run. But while we adjust to this new version of normal, healthcare workers are dealing with heavy repercussions. According to Trusted Health, the overall mental health of nurses has decreased by 26% since before COVID hit. More than half of healthcare workers nationwide report experiencing symptoms of mental illness. The mental health of medical professionals has not rebounded like experts hoped it would.
Medical professionals need our support years and appreciation how more than ever. Now more than ever, healthcare workers need to know we haven’t forgotten about them and that their bravery has inspired us. Their sacrifices still matter to us even though life can feel like it’s returning back to normal.
At Merchology, we love our healthcare workers, and we want to help you show your appreciation to those who have generously given up their time, energy, and safety to protect and care for others.
One of the simplest but most effective ways to show your appreciation is to give tangible reminders that you’re thinking of them. Whether you are a grateful community member who wants to give back to your local hospital or a hospital administrator shopping for employee holiday presents, we have a guide to quality custom gifts that are perfect for your trusted healthcare workers!
