Nurse Burnout, Job Dissatisfaction, and Missed Care in Nursing Homes
Burnout and occupational stress among healthcare workers are increasingly being recognized as significant threats to patient safety and care quality. Our speaker, Dr. Elizabeth White, discusses her recent study of nursing home nurses which found that nurses in this setting often leave necessary care undone due to inadequate time or resources and that this “missed care” is strongly associated with nurse burnout and job dissatisfaction. She discusses implications for care quality and staff retention and explore steps administrators can take to improve the work environment for nurses.
