Episode 24:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant negative impact on our healthcare system, and due to the stresses of the situation, many nurses and healthcare facility staff are currently burnt out. So what happens when there’s not enough staff to support the very people that need them the most?
In this episode, Kenrick is joined by Kerry Stewart, an industry veteran in Senior Assisted Living, and Curtis Khan, the CEO of BookJane to tackle this tough conversation. They delve into the issue of mental health as it relates to the shortage of healthcare workers, and how the COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating the problem. First, Kerry shares real world examples of what a “day in the life” looks like for a worker in a healthcare facility. Curtis then unpacks how BookJane, an emerging technological platform that was specifically built to solve the challenges associated with staffing shortages in healthcare, is helping to ameliorate the situation.
