'Vital' American Academy of Physician Assistants survey outlines coronavirus struggles: A lack of PPE, furloughs and burnout

\'Vital\' American Academy of Physician Assistants survey outlines coronavirus struggles: A lack of PPE, furloughs and burnout

A lack of personal protective equipment. Reductions in pay. Burnout.

Those are among the challenges being faced by physician assistants during their ongoing frontline battle against the novel coronavirus, according to a survey released Tuesday by the American Academy of Physician Assistants. The survey took responses from 743 PAs over a 12-day period, according to the AAPA.

Almost 39% of respondents treating COVID-19 patients said they have gone without PPE. In one set of survey data, 3.6% of PAs said they've been infected with COVID-19.

Dr. Jonathan Sobel, senior administrative director of advanced clinical providers at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York, praised the versatile work of PAs, noting that 10% of survey respondents had changed practice settings.

"PAs are trained, you know in this generalist model, and then we sort of differentiate out into the different areas we work so we're very flexible and adaptable to be able to go into those situations and so this was really the almost perfect use case for PAs," said Sobel, also a member of the AAPA board.

The AAPA noted: "In most states, PAs are required to have and maintain a relationship with a specific physician in order to practice." Governors in Maine, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Louisiana, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Virginia signed executive orders effectively waiving that restriction, according to the AAPA.

Some PAs who answered the survey said the pandemic has impacted their employment status. Some were furloughed (22.1%) and others were terminated (3.1%). The majority (58.7%) said their hours were reduced, while 30.6% said their base pay was reduced.
