Topic 2 DQ 1One of the problems the organization I am currently doing my practicum has
is shortage of nurses. The ratio of nurse to patients is not appropriate. The shortage placed
work stress on the available nurses who are likely faced with nursing burnout. This has
implication on both the nurses and the patients alike. Patient’s safety is compromised, and
nurses’ health and license are at risk. Overall patient’s satisfaction is lowered.Studies have
shown that nurse’s poor health, moderate to high levels of burnout are linked to poor
patients care that may lead to medical error and poor standard of care (Hall et al., 2016).
Nurses’ burnouts are due to overwork stress experienced by the nurses. It makes nurse to
have anxiety when they think about their job. They develop the feeling of tiredness, and
even depression while doing the job.These feelings of exhaustion and burnout related issues
are responsible for nurses reduced personal achievement, compromise patients’ safety, and
low patient’s satisfaction. During your practicum, determine what clinical problem or issue
the organization is facing. Discuss two implications for nursing. Using 200-300 words APA
format with at least two references. Sources must be published within the last 5 years.
