Erin Trujillo, ICU manager at North Suburban Medical Center in Thornton, has been a registered nurse for six years and a health care worker for more than 20. She has never experienced anything like the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

As nearly everyone struggles with burnout during the COVID-19 pandemic, Colorado residents are most concerned with the burnout of healthcare workers, according to a survey from Verilife.

The survey found that Colorado residents searched online for terms related to healthcare worker burnout more than any other kind of burnout.

Colorado and Rhode Island were the only states with healthcare worker burnout as their number one search; however, three states had top searches for phrases relating to burnout among nurses.

The most common causes of burnout this year were COVID-19, work, finances, politics, the news and social media in that order, according to the survey. Twenty states had occupation-specific burnout as their top search result.

The most common causes of workplace burnout were pressure to put in extra work, not taking paid time off, working remotely, fear of layoffs and furloughs, stressful bosses and stressful coworkers.

Other notable top searches include signs of job burnout, work from home burnout and emotional burnout.

The full survey results are available online at verilife.com.
