Healthcare professionals are under more stress than ever evidenced by increases in demand for better services that are more efficient and thorough, higher costs, reduced staffing, and diminishing resources.
Many healthcare workers are putting in longer hours and for less pay.
From working twenty-four shifts to simply burning the midnight oil catching up on paperwork, the healthcare industry puts a great deal of stress and fatigue on the average worker and their relationships, including family.
Healthcare professional’s bare witness to human suffering on a routine basis and are constantly reminded that tragedy, pain, and challenge often loom large in the midst of helping patients heal. As a result, compassion fatigue and burnout are major hazards of the profession that are becoming far too common.
