Nurse Burnout As High As 63%
Every employer has workplace culture: the way people feel about working there, the amount of stress employees are under, and much more. A new survey by Kronos Incorporated, found that up to 63% of nurses experience burnout, which can be a cause of medical errors. Medical errors can be considered Connecticut medical malpractice depending on the circumstances.
The survey results are troublesome:
- 44% of nurses are concerned their patient care will suffer because of fatigue; 37% worry about making a mistake; 11% have actually made a mistake because they are tired.
- 85% of nurses surveyed reported that their job has caused them to become fatigued.
- 56% of nurses say they have driven home drowsy and 12% have pulled off to the side of the road to rest.
