  • Meaning and Decision Making in Times of Crisis Invited Van Stralen says stress is the singular most important thing that interferes with operations and performance. Overwhelming stress can lead to people leaving the medical field prematurely after years of preparation and education. In this time in particular, we need to figure out the difference between what’s a demand (basic requirement) on us as an individual, and what’s an expectation (added pressure).  In a critical incident (like COVID-19) when someone’s dying, we have to sort out what’s an expectation, what’s a demand, and then forget the expectations. We should be doing that in normal times—distinguishing between the two—but right now in particular, it’s imperative that we are able to do that. For example: right now, healthcare workers everywhere have an overarching belief (expectation) that we should be able to prevent pain and death in our patients. This is nearly impossible in this level of pandemic.  Still, these expectations change the way we think and how we solve problems and process information. When we’re helping a patient, we’re responsible for getting oxygen to their cells, but they’re responsible for consuming it (to an extent). We’re responsible to do all we can to protect ourselves, and still show up for our jobs as healthcare workers. We need to protect our skin, protect our clothing, and communicate clearly with each other. (04/2020)
