As a consequence of the current SARS-CoV-2 emergency scenario, professionals working in the health services had to deal with a series of activities such as the reorganization of professional services and procedures in response to different biohazard situations. Unfortunately, they found themselves experiencing contexts of stress and personal discomfort. During the SARS-CoV-2 emergency, it has been challenging to implement the usual problem management strategies both at an organizational/structural and individual level, and the scale of the phenomenon and the types of needs of COVID-19 patients involved some categories of health workers, with limited possibility of replacement, resolution and rostering. This report contains some operational indications for the prevention of stress and the predisposition of interventions aimed at the physical and psychological protection of health workers.
