More health care workers are suffering from eating disorders amid pandemic
Working in the health care industry can impact the mind and body.
“I’ve been a nurse for seven years and this pandemic has been the most stressful time of my nursing career,” registered nurse Hugo Mercardo said.
Mercardo says working 12-hour shifts on the front lines during the COVID-19 crisis has left him tired and hungry.
“I just pretty much stuff my food and take a quick lunch and go back on the floor,” he said.
Mercardo says the hospital he works at in Southern California is understaffed and many of his coworkers are overworked.
