Preventing And Mitigating Nurse Fatigue In Healthcare

Sharing is caring!

Preventing and mitigating nurse fatigue in healthcare is a pressing concern for many hospitals. It is important to note that everyone is affected by a nurse’s fatigue. This condition doesn’t only affect the nurses themselves but also their patients and their workplace at large. Nurse fatigue is directly attributed to a nurse’s lack of sleep. Lack of sufficient sleep stems from overexertion during back-to-back shifts in the hospital and strenuous hospital duties.

Surely, nurses are exceptional with the level of dedication their nature of work requires; but they are not exempted from experiencing fatigue. They are human, too.

To avoid nurse fatigue, nurses must properly assess themselves before every shift. Nurses should also be the ones looking out for themselves. Self-care must always come first.
