Play • 19 min

The COVID-19 pandemic has the United States emergency healthcare workforce underwater. An average ICU physician will normally see eight patients per shift, but because of the pandemic, we are seeing doctors having to care for over twenty. In this episode, Dr. Patricia Pittman, the Fitzhugh Mullan Professor of Health Workforce Equity at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, joins Frank to discuss her research into the dire shortages of healthcare workers and how those shortages have pushed hospitals and workers to the limit.
