For the past two years, healthcare workers and nurses have been at the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. With increased hours and decreased flexibility, nurses are struggling with mental health issues and burnout. Travel and relief nurses, shuffled from facility to facility, face complicated scheduling and wage issues.
New Houston-based app Nurseify was designed to address the strain and burnout of nurses by offering a new approach to staffing and self care. The free app benefits relief nurses through its scheduling features, but it also serves as a multi-faceted wellness app for permanently staffed nurses. Some of the largest Houston area hospitals are located in Katy, including Houston Methodist West, Memorial Hermann West, Texas Children’s West and MD Anderson West.
