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.
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.
OCCUPATIONAL STRESS ISSUES AMONG NURSES The health care industry has had to deal with occupational stress factors over a long period of time. Studies have shown that, over time, health care workers are higher up the ladder with issues related to substance abuse, suicide and elevated forms of depression and anxiety linked to occupational stress. In addition to the aforementioned psychological factors, burnout, absenteeism, reduced patient satisfaction and treatment/ diagnosis errors are also resulting outcomes of occupational stress. Nursing is generally perceived as a very demanding profession. Along with the increased demand and progress in the nursing profession, there has also been an increase in stress levels of nurses who usually experience
This shows how stressed nurses are from being overworked. They work long, stressful hours that can put their body 's health at risk.

Incivility defines as “a rude or unsociable speech or behavior (Merriam 2010). The types of behaviors that constitute between nurses can be due to stress, heavy workload, bullying, harassment and aggressions. Incivility and bullying in nursing are complex problems that have garnered much attention in recent years (Felbinger 2008). Emerging evidence suggests that incivility in the workplace has significant implications from nurses, patients, and health care organizations causing a high turnover rate.

“Burnout was first defined by Freudenberger and involves feelings of failure and exhaustion resulting from excessive demands on a persons energy with insufficient reward for the effort.” (Mayben) Teacher burnout is a condition that teachers face, and should be taken seriously. When teachers suffer from burnout, they can experience a variety of different symptoms. Some of the symptoms include “tiredness and lack of energy [they can also experience] tension and irritability” (Brennan, Hiscock, Hynes, and McDonald).

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

Circumstances like chiller malfunction, power drop or failure of generator, delay in supply of medical gasses have severe ramifications for hospitals.
