But there are problems, in this because nurses are very likely to experience nurse burnout in which is caused by these guidelines. Usually, nurses are taken advantage of and this causes them to become overworked and have a decline in patient quality care. This becomes debunked due to the great amount of people that says that it is fine with current conditions but with current conditions things have been only on the decline. This decline is due to many different things but overall this causes poor patient care and nurses to dropout of their positions. And these dropouts cause less staff and more stress on the remaining staff due to overload in their work.
In America, people all over the world deals with stress. Being a nurse is a stressful job. Being stress can be fatigue and even cause ill health for an individual. Stressing in the environment can cause employees to stressful situations causing difficult health, and safety problems not only for the nurses, but also for their patients. Many workers suffer from stress.
Chiou et al. (1994) found that the most common diagnosis given to nurses was ‘‘muscular strain’’. Lumbar herniation and mechanical back pain develop as a result of poor body mechanics and damage to the body structures. A. Karahan (2004) found that nurses did not use body mechanics correctly while making some movements. In particular, sitting, lifting, extending, and moving the patient to the side of the bed were not done correctlyby the nurses.
Nurse and doctors both are important part of a hospital and there occupation is full of stress despite of different level of employment (Scott, 2013). Stress is classified as a precursor or stimulus in response to certain situations, interactions and harsh behaviors. It can also be defined as psychological behavior of a person in response to the environmental condition risking his or her life in danger. In hospital setup, there are certain issues relating to patients, long work hours, misinterpretations, shortage of medications and shortage of instruments that create stress for doctors and nurses. Such events predispose the stress factor and can be threating.
Stress was also related to poor job satisfaction in the workplace, with employees and employers. I do agree that nurse’s workloads can become stressful. Depending on what the situations are, nurses are expected to do a great deal of work in place of the doctor sometimes. They are to handle some pregnancies, administer shots and may also have to deal with deaths. Some nurses also work
Abstract Burnout affects many of the nurses these days. There are many factors that contribute to a burnout. Sometimes people do not even realize that they are heading towards a burnout. In this research paper it talks about the negative consequences of a burnout in nursing. For example, it can lead to a decreased immune system that will make the body vulnerable to colds and flus (Smith, M., Segal, J., Robinson, L., & Segal, R. June, 2016).
Nurses often face ethical dilemmas and moral distress throughout various levels of direct and indirect patient care. According to Moon and Kim (2015), patients often die in the intensive care unit, and ethical conflicts frequently occur due to a variety of factors, such as verbal abuse, poor communication between health care providers, and increased incidences of end-of-life issues. I think this is a very important subject to think about, especially when these conflicts can significantly impact job satisfaction, burnout, and ultimately threaten the quality of care for patients. Furthermore, a qualitative study conducted by Henrich et al. (2017) shows that healthcare providers often experience negative emotional repercussions from moral distress in the ICU, and patient care is frequently perceived as being negatively affected.
The term “violence against women” means any act of violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, psychological and sexual harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, that may be either occur in public or private life.  Workplace violence in health care facilities is rising in alarm rate and has become a major public problem. Even the health care providers, and hospitals are not exceptions including nurses. [2,3] According to the World Health Organization (WHO), workplace violence is where staffs are abused, threatened, or assaulted in circumstances related to their work and while commuting to and from work, involved explicit or implicit challenges to their safety,
The objective was to determine the occupational stress and coping strategies used by nurses to overcome workplace stress. The tools used were Job Stress Index and Coping Checklist. The findings revealed that majority (63%) of nurses were highly stressed, whereas 37% expressed moderate stress. Different coping strategies were used by nurses such as discussion with spouse, problem solving and engaging themselves in hobbies like reading, music etc. The results showed strong negative correlation (r = -0.920) between job stress and use of coping strategies by
Theoretical Framework on Violence in the Workplace Violence can be experienced by many different people in different situations in health care. In the healthcare world, nurses are one of the most exposed groups to workplace violence in the world. Circumstances that lead patients to the hospital can be very stressful which can lead to anxiety, agitation, depression. Through using the theoretical framework developed by Ida Jean Orlando, workplace violence can be viewed and applied to address or even prevent violence experienced by nurses possibly. Violence has been a long-standing issue in the workplace.
