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.

The study was completed in Outpatient Clinics and inpatient department
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.
Patient safety depends on collaboration among healthcare professionals and their ability to work as a team. Thus, it is no surprise the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project included teamwork and collaboration as core competencies to ensure patients receive high-quality care (QSEN, 2018). The inability of healthcare professionals to collaborate and work together results in poor patient outcomes, duplicate therapies, higher cost of care, and decreased patient satisfaction. In fact, the Joint Commission found 70% of major medical errors to be the result of ineffective collaboration among healthcare professionals (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, 2005). Therefore, it is imperative every leader in
One in six people of working age is estimated to suffer from mental illness, most commonly depression and anxiety, and is associated with increased personal and economic costs. Mental health difficulties are oftentimes conceptualised as incapability to work effectively, however, majority of mental illness in the workplace is treatable and some are preventable. Nursing, as a ‘helping profession’, is a demanding, high-risk and stressful profession that exposes the nurses to both acute and chronic stressors that may lead to mental disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder or secondary traumatic stress. This essay will discuss about the mental health in the nursing profession, particularly examining the workplace factors that impact on nurses’ mental health and evidence based strategies that build self-resilience. Stress is among the most common workplace hazards for nurses and is
Their experiences often told about the organization that how well a hospital system is operating. Patients satisfaction is focused on" procedure measure of patients. It shows the patient’s own reaction , and evaluation of care given by health care providers. Patient satisfaction is the only available measure of the personal impact of the full spectrum of the care process(CHAKA, 2005). Patient dissatisfaction with the nursing care services may lead to lower usage of the nursing care administrations by the patients (Yunus et al., 2004).
Griffiths et al (2014) stated that frustration is a common problem for nurses who are caring for people with dementia. I think that Margaret’s emotions were the biggest factor that influenced my feelings. The frustration on her face upset me as I desperately wanted to resolve the problem for her. However, part of the problem was me not allowing her to go home. Marquardt (2011) acknowledged that care for people with dementia is made more difficult in the hospital setting as the busy environment can disorientate them and leads to
Behaviors of aggression, anger, frustration, and acts of intimidation when patients are experiencing an illness can exacerbate stressful situations which can turn violent. Nurses are typically a target in these situations because they are consistently in contact with the patient throughout their shift. When nurses interact with patients, their actions and reactions to certain circumstances can, most of the time, determine the next interaction with the patient. The behavior of the nurse and the patient are essential at this step, as negativity from one person can cause negative behavior as a response from the next person. Nurses cannot control the actions and behaviors of others; however, they can
We all need motivation in order to stay happy at our jobs. Once that motivation starts fading, the inevitable question of ‘Is this really right for me?’ will begin. For nurses, most if not all of us will have good motivation in the beginning: You want to help the sick, you want to serve a good cause, you want to relieve pain and burden, you want to live your life not just for yourself but also for others. What happens after some time and a lot of stress is we tend to lose all this motivation, and we feel that working as a nurse is not as fulfilling or exciting as we expected. Loss of motivation is by no means an optimum scenario, so here are some things nurses could consider in order to stay motivated: 1.
