COVID-19: Study suggests almost half of ICU staff have turned to alcohol or had suicidal thoughts


Almost half of intensive care workers have turned to alcohol or had suicidal thoughts during the coronavirus pandemic, a new study suggests. The research shows that 45% of ICU staff polled met the clinical threshold for at least one of the following: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), severe anxiety or depression and problem drinking. One in eight (13%) said they had experienced frequent thoughts of 'being better off dead' or hurting themselves within the past two weeks. The study, published in the Occupational Medicine journal, surveyed 709 healthcare workers from nine intensive care wards across England in June and July 2020, but has not yet been peer reviewed.
