Nurse Burnout and Patient Safety

March 30,2018


Recently I read an article that discussed an allegation that stated nurse  burnout may be causing an increase in nursing errors.  This really made me think that this may actually be a topic that has some relevance.  In my 30+ career as a nurse, I have witnessed many nurses that I would say met the criteria of being "burned out" and they did seem somewhat apathetic towards their job and the care they gave their patients.  This being said, this article discussed how there was a lack of prospective studies to identify direct correlation between the two.  The article did identify that "burned out" nurses were less likely to report errors than a happy nurse- one that is content at work- so the data in these studies might be very bias.   Nurse errors can lead to a detrimental negative impact to a patients stay in a hospital or facility.

Healthcare leaders need to focus on a positive safety culture within their institutions and make sure staffing ratios are manageable and safe to avoid negative impacts on the patients they are caring for.


 Certified Legal Nurse Consultants are invaluable in the legal arena because they know the inner workings of a healthcare setting and can give insight to the legal team.
