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.
It is the nurses’ responsibility to ensure patients are safety at all times. The nurse abused and took care of her in a rude manner which traumatized the patient. These irresponsible acts they did also loss their public trust in the nursing
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.
Since these residents must be placed into a facility, and nursing staff remains understaffed, short-handed, and overworked, consequently, abuse, neglect and mistreatment rise to the surface where residents reap this unethical behavior. “Elder mistreatment refers to intentional actions that cause harm or create a serious risk of harm whether or not harm is intended to a vulnerable elder by a caregiver or other person who stands in a trust relationship to the elder, or failure by a caregiver to satisfy the elder’s basic needs or to protect the elder from harm” (Daly, J.M., Merchant, M.L., & Jogerst, G.J, 2016, p.1). “The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the number of people aged over 60 will triple between 2000 and 2050” (Corbi, G.,Grattagliano, I., Ivshina, E., Ferrara, N., Solimeno-Cipriano, A., & Campobasso, C.P, 2015, p. 297). With this projection, elder mistreatment,
Some include alienating themselves from everyone else, utilization of drugs or food to cope with things, taking a while to actually get things done, taking out frustrations on other people, or skipping work/school. According to an article by Charanjit Singh, gender, level of qualification, and age contributes to the risk factors of burnout (Singh, 2011). A nurse does not become burnt out easily, it’s a process and as it gradually becomes worse then it will lead to a burnout (Smith, M., Segal, J., Robinson, L., & Segal, R. June, 2016). Negative Consequences Nurses who are often suffering from burnout typically have a lower quality of life. There are indeed consequences to a burnout.
Inadequate behavior and increased workload due to pressure of patient and acute care responsibility gives rise to stress and unethical behavior. Considering the oddness for the multidisciplinary health team, nurses are a large group practicing at hospital as compared to doctors. They both need to minimize their stress level that may lead to poor patients care (Secemsky, 2013). There lies a strong relationship between doctor and nurse. This traditional relationship has different role and responsibilities and each are directly linked to hospital administration and patient.
There is evidence that ‘at risk’ patients are not always identified; and even when warning signs are identified, they are not always acted on in a timely manner (Thompson et al., 2008). After that blue Code run on that patient, unfortunately the patient died, that time I feel very guilty and upset. That incident realized me not only patient is suffer, but novice nurse also affected and remains mentally depressed while working in intensive care
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.
Conflict can arise from a variety of means, within someone, between two people, or a group of people (Disch, 2017). However, if conflict is unresolved, it can breakdown communication, decrease team performance, create a toxic work environment, and ultimately decrease patient’s quality of care (Disch, 2017; Johansen, 2012). A common, yet ineffective resolution to conflict in healthcare is avoidance. This is most commonly seen between a physician and a nurse, when the nurse hesitates to question a physician, as he/she holds the “authority” (Disch, 2017). Although, if the conflict is not properly addressed, the avoidance behavior will create added stress on the nurse and potentially place the patient(s) at harm (Johansen, 2012).
Workplace violence can cause harm that you might not even think of on a nurse in dealing with a situation that escalates very quickly leaving them afraid to go to work and leaving emotional and maybe even physical marks. For example, picture a couple gets admitted to a cardiac unit, and the patient is being well cared for but their partner that is staying with them doesn’t have the same feeling. So now let’s say the partner becomes very upset about this feeling that is boiling inside him and convinces their partner to leave against medical advice. Adding to the troubling picture this the partner becomes more and more aggressive with staffing and by the time the patient is ready to walk out of the hospital the partner makes a remark along the lines of coming back to the hospital and shooting up the place before being escorted out by security. Now in this scenario situation, you have an entire floor of nurses and an entire hospital that is worried about someone coming back and attacking the hospital and at the same time, they are still expected to do their job and take care of their patients just as they normally would.
