Psychosocial Challenges of Nurses during COVID19 Pandemic in Ernakulam District, Kerala

Akhilmon KS

Abstract: COVID-19 is a disease first reported in Wuhan, China, as viral pneumonia on 31 December 2019. The disease has since spread worldwide, leading to an ongoing pandemic. This disease is caused by a new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2). COVID-19 is transmitted when people breathe in air contaminated by droplets and tiny airborne particles containing the virus. Airborne, surface, and fecal-oral transmission are the other three uncommon transmission types. Nurses play a vital role in health care and are often unsung heroes in emergency responses and health care systems. Nursing includes preventing deceases, promoting health, and the care of diseased, disabled, or dying persons. Nurses are at the forefront of the Covid- 19 battle; they risk their lives and their physical and mental health. This quantitative exploratory study thoroughly examined three significant challenges in nurses' lives during the pandemic: psychological, psychical, and social challenges. The study was conducted in twenty hospitals in Ernakulam district, Kerala. This study is descriptive and survey-based. Primary data was collected through a questionnaire. The Secondary data was collected from journals, books, magazines, internet, articles, etc. A questionnaire was sent to the nurses through Google Forms, and they filled those forms and sent them back. The study revealed that nurses faced psychosocial challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is concluded that the social challenges, family challenges, and work challenges of nurses during the covid19 pandemic are highly correlated to each other.
