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.
And these dropouts cause less staff and more stress on the remaining staff due to overload in their work. Guidelines are currently fine as they stand but improvements can be made to structure around the more important aspect which is the nurses.

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.
However, it can also be complicated and confusing. Both social scientists and medical professionals have recognized that giving birth in the modern medical setting can sometimes trigger feelings of fear, helplessness and loss of control, which can have a lasting negative impact on women, leading to postpartum depression (PPD), PTSD, and fear of future birthing experiences. Processing a birthing experience with the help of a trained professional can potentially reduce these negative effects, and
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.
There are many types of losses, death being the most devastating one as it affects not only the dying but their families too. As a nurse, it is our job to help the patients or their loved ones to comprehend and accept loss so that life can carry on. If a person does not go through the grieving process after a loss, a serious emotional, mental and social problems may happen. In order to help the grieving patients and their families, nurses have to understand what exactly grieving is. Death is a distressing topic; it could influence the quality of care that is given by the nurse.
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.
Work-related stress is a progressive issue around the world. It has significant undesirable effects that affect not only the health and well-being of nurses, but also the effectiveness and productivity of the organisation. Give rise to the Singapore nursing shortage in years to come, work stress notably in the nursing profession has become a major concern in recent years as it appears to be associated with burnout and low job satisfaction which will eventually lead to the intention to leave nursing profession among nurses. The current research study considers working environment as an important element in affecting nurses’ intention to leave their profession (Beatrice, Karen & Hans, 2009). Although there are many literatures studied work-related stress associated with intention to leave, however, there is no similar research study carry out in Singapore context.
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.
There is a high rate of substance abuse in healthcare workers because they can easily access drugs, or controlled substances. Due to the excessive use of these drugs, healthcare workers feel depression, inconsistency, emotionalism, absenteeism, and violence in their behavior which can cause risk of accidents and reduce their power of functioning and productivity. The case study declared that healthcare workers have poor health and depression issues because most of them do not able to handle multiple tasks and long working hours, which caused depression and health issues and at the great extent that some of them prefer to switch the job or even some workers commit
