Inside the covid ICU

podcast The Tea Room

With covid case numbers in NSW continuing to climb, ICU staff are concerned that the hospital system won’t be able to cope under the pressure of having uncurbed disease.

Doctors, nurses and allied health workers were already feeling burnout from working through the pandemic last year.

And now, they find themselves working 12 hour shifts in heavy PPE which proves to be both physically and mentally taxing.

This episode we are joined by Dr Mominah Bhatti, an intensive care registrar at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, to talk about the reality of working in the hot ICU.
