Este escrito describe las acciones y retos derivados de la atención clínica a pacientes, familiares y personal de salud en seis hospitales COVID-19 en México. Se resaltan los principales problemas identificados, las estrategias para abordarlo y las barreras encontradas durante esta pandemia. Finalmente, este escrito puede ser de utilidad para planeación de actividades psicológicas clínicas dentro de hospitales COVID-19, en aquellos lugares en donde vienen nuevas olas de contagio.
