You have orchestrated an impressive recovery by reacting to the challenges faced by your clinic over the last few years. Your clinic persevered through the COVID crisis and is now navigating an unsteady economy filled with uncertain patients. Can you continue this labor of love even when you have to work Labor Day to catch up on documentation?
The physical therapist burnout crisis started long before COVID-19, inflation, and changes in therapy rates. Burnout has long been caused by using slow and inefficient tools to do a job that demands speed and efficiency. Slow EMRs with non-automated documentation leave therapists spending nights and weekends documenting from home. There is no time to think. No time to recharge. This is the root cause of therapist burnout.
