How are doctors at work in times of Covid-19? Today the experiences of physician, community and health are Margot Bardy, Staff Physician at GGD IJsselland. It has hired dozens of new colleagues for a massive vaccination campaign in recent weeks.
“I don’t know how many doctors I have hired, I think around thirty forty doctors soon anyway,” he says. Physicians and Health Association Margot Bardis. She is a medical doctor at GGD IJsselland. Since she has always been in charge of the national vaccination program, the responsibility for vaccinations against COVID-19 has been partly on her shoulders. New doctors should receive vaccinations who have reacted to the vaccination. Bardis: I’ve been doing this for a very long time and have never seen an allergic reaction to the National Immunization Program vaccines. But in the Covid campaign, it does happen with some regularity. We see post-vaccination symptoms of fainting or illness for people who really have an allergic reaction and are transported away in the ambulance.
Are these doctors new to injection sites all newcomers within GGD? “Yes, and that’s the exciting thing about it right away. We have many general practitioners and retired specialists, from all over the hospital, from neonatology to MDL, including an orthopedic surgeon. There is also a group of associate physicians who do this along with Their job.I found it cool because you read about burnout. But there are still assistants – like a surgeon – who have extra time because of their hours of compensation, for example. Bardy says they are passionate people. That’s the common place. They just want to help. For their own good, Bardy says. But also in the public interest.Always ask if the employer is aware of the intended add-on.
The exciting thing, Bardi says, is that they are all new, but also “come from a different environment.” They are doctors who are accustomed to treating individual patients. But here, in such a mass campaign, they must first of all follow the instructions. It’s not like a doctor’s office. Sometimes this creates tension. Bardis openly argues in the introductory meeting that the goals of this campaign differ from those of individual healthcare. As a general practitioner, you need to realize that you love to think about the individual patient’s condition. Now we are not dealing with an individual patient, but with a large group of citizens who are being vaccinated. At first, there was still time to think about it – and discuss it with me, she laughs. “But it will be very busy soon, so that is no longer possible.”
Bardi was surprised at the number of doctors who were able to bring them. This seemed to be a big problem beforehand, but it wasn’t actually so bad. This is because doctors want to help, as they don’t have to do it in order to pay. Occasionally the doctor refused. You must have some knowledge of acute medicine. Some of them were administrative or worked in pharmacy. They are very far from the daily practice. But you don’t have to be intense to participate.
