Bedside Talks | Part 3: The Top Three Reasons for Nurse Burnout

Join Hank Drummond, PhD, MDiv, BA, RN, Chief Clinical Officer for Cross Country Healthcare, and Debra Renna, PhD, RN, CNE for the next installment of our Bedside Talks WebEx series. Hank will be discussing the top three reasons for nurse burnout and how both healthcare facilities and providers can address these issues.

An aging population requiring increased care and constrained budgets in facilities nationwide have put nurses under pressure like never before. They are tired, stressed out and in some cases, fed up. This kind of stress is unhealthy for nurses and costly for hospitals, leading to sick days and fueling turnover. We asked nurses to tell us what factors could lead to burnout and hundreds of them responded. From staffing shortages to patient ratios and even patient disrespect and abuse, they let us know what was making their jobs more difficult. Join the discussion to share your experience and collaborate with us as we look at what causes nurse burnout and ways healthcare facilities can work combat it.

Be a part of the conversation and communicate directly with Dr. Drummond via chat or voice!
