The COVID-19 pandemic provides a stark reminder of the importance of health worker safety. Inadequate personal protection equipment (PPE) has been a problem in many settings and there have been too many examples of health workers becoming infected and dying from COVID-19.
The harsh consequences of inequalities have also been laid bare by the pandemic. In countries such as the UK and USA, a disproportionate number of infections and COVID-19 deaths have occurred among Black and ethnic minority communities and people in the lowest socioeconomic groups.
Women comprise about 70% of the health and social care workforce
and have been on the front lines of the response to COVID-19, Safety Blood Lancet where they are at increased risk of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection; women are also likely to be hard hit by the caregiving burdens and economic losses resulting from the pandemic.
But what the COVID-19 pandemic has also made clear is how dependent patient safety is on health worker safety. On Sept 17, as we mark World Patient Safety Day 2020, it is crucial to highlight that there can be no patient safety without health worker safety. As in previous outbreaks of Ebola virus disease, Middle East respiratory syndrome, and severe acute respiratory syndrome, only when health workers are safe can they keep patients safe and provide health systems with stability and resilience.
