The clinical issue of interest I have chosen to focus on is burnout in nurses. Burnout among nurses can have profound effects on patient care and healthcare outcomes, so it is important that we understand the causes and effects of this phenomenon. To better understand this topic, I searched four different databases within the Walden Library: CINAHL Plus with Full Text, Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition Database, MEDLINE Complete Database, and PubMed Database.
The first article I found was “Burnout Syndrome among Nurses Working in an Intensive Care Unit” (Schmidt et al., 2018). This study looked at the prevalence of burnout among ICU nurses through a survey-based study consisting of 422 participants. The results showed that 87% of the respondents reported having moderate to severe levels of burnout syndrome, indicating that this population may be particularly vulnerable to burnout.
The second article I found was “Nurse Managers’ Perceptions about Staff Nurses’ Job Stressors” (Myers & Farley-Peoples, 2017). This qualitative study explored nurse managers’ perceptions regarding job stressors as well as strategies used to address these issues. Results indicated that there were numerous factors leading to stress for nurses such as workloads, lack of support from management or colleagues, hazardous working environments and inadequate staffing levels.
The third article I found was “Job Stress Among Hospital Nurses: A Cross Section Study from Saudi Arabia” (Alghnam et al., 2016). This quantitative study surveyed 246 hospital nurses in Saudi Arabia regarding their experiences with job stress from various sources such as workloads and emotional demands associated with caring for patients. Results indicated that a majority of nursing staff experienced higher than average levels of job stress which could lead to decreased quality patient care if not addressed properly.
Finally, the fourth article I found was “Understanding Emotional Exhaustion in Clinical Nurses: An Integrative Review” (Hofmann et al., 2018) which utilized an integrative review methodology to explore emotional exhaustion amongst clinical nurses by looking at literature published between 2005 – 2017 related to the topic. Through analysis they identified several contributing factors including high demands placed upon nurses due to organizational policies or changes leading up health care reform legislation; cultural beliefs impacting gender roles; lack social support networks within professional settings etc…. All these points taken together lead me identify Orem’s Self Care Deficit Theory being utilized within setting itself .
All four articles provide insight into how burnout can negatively affect both individual performance and overall healthcare outcomes when left unaddressed or overlooked altogether . Moving forward , further research could conducted incorporate evidence based practices aimed reducing preventable cases amongst nursing staff order improve quality life both personally professionally speaking going forward
