Episode 9 - Confronting Compassion Fatigue with Karen Harrell, RN

It’s unlikely that you’d ever think of a healthcare professional as someone who cares “too much”. After all, that’s the objective of their calling. But make no mistake, compassion fatigue is a real phenomenon and can take its toll on even the most seasoned healthcare professional. In this episode, we’re joined by Karen Harrell. She’s a registered nurse with decades of experience in managing assisted living communities. Karen recently presented on compassion fatigue at several of our 2019 Education Conferences. She gives us a rundown of the warning signs, the symptoms, and provides a few tips to help long-term care workers confront this sometimes debilitating condition.
