Nursing is more than a job. It is a profession that attracts those who value compassion, want to make a difference in other people’s lives, and want to do greater good in the world. While the profession provides endless options of practice, settings, and flexibility, nurses are burning out due to schedules, long shifts, mental and physical exhaustion, workload, conflict and bullying, challenging patients, rapid advances in technology, and lack of control. And when stress and fatigue take over a nurse’s ability to prioritize self-care and recovery time, patient safety and quality is greatly affected and compromised. Nurse Burnout: Overcoming Stress in Nursing explores the stress-fatigue-burnout connection, the risks involved, and defines the health concerns and practice considerations for how to move the profession forward. Author Suzanne Waddill-Goad provides nurses with the tools they need set boundaries and combat compassion fatigue in order to renew energy to be at your personal and professional best.

A surgeon unknowingly damages the intestines of a nurse expecting only an overnight stay after surgery, beginning a chain of more tragic and preventable errors. The consequences result in the nurse spending several weeks on an ICU ventilator in a drug-induced coma, having four additional surgeries, and requiring a pump to drain the raging infection from her open abdomen. As she awakens and tries to come to terms with what happened to her, she realizes the hospital and doctors will never tell her the whole truth; she has to find out what went wrong on her own. In order to heal, she determines to write and share her story so others may learn how infections, adverse events, and medical errors occur frequently in hospitals, sometimes resulting in death. More than a narrative, Anatomy of Medical Errors: The Patient in Room 2 shines light on the dysfunction that underpins many hospital organizations, especially teaching hospitals, including silencing of the patient, provider arrogance, flawed coordination of care, poor communication, and lack of ownership for outcomes. Forever changed by the experience, author Donna Helen Crisp uses her struggles to teach nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals how to prevent or avoid potentially dangerous situations, recognize warning signs, and work collaboratively to provide transparent patient care. This book provides an ethical and critical thought process framework for care providers and others through a compelling story about hospital culture. Readers who want to understand how delivery of care works in fast-paced and complex healthcare environments will come away engaged and informed.

"Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the second edition of Overcoming Secondary Stress in Medical and Nursing Practice explores the phenomenon of secondary stress experienced by clinicians on the frontlines of care. The book integrates concepts, assessment tools and self-care insights from the first edition with new concepts, evidence, strategies, and vignettes from the field concerning secondary stress experienced specifically by physicians, physician assistants and nurses. The findings and efforts of medical and nursing professional organizations to address and ameliorate endemic secondary stress are explored. Strategies for identifying, reframing, and intervening in stressful problems of practice, including wicked problems are also addressed. Tools for enhancing self-knowledge and developing a personal, self-care protocol to recognize and prevent secondary stress are the book's core feature. This book highlights the importance of interprofessional communication and support in ameliorating the stressors of clinical work, an effort enhanced by the book's interdisciplinary co-authorship. The extreme stressors of the COVID-19 pandemic on health care practitioners and the health care system illustrate the interconnectedness of health-enhancing personal self-care strategies, quality patient care, and renewed career commitment - the goal of this second edition"--

Emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and the decreased feeling of personal accomplishments are three factors that lead to nurse burnout (Kravits, K, 2010). Nurse burn out can lead nurses to leave the nursing profession. This project evaluates the effectiveness of showing appreciation towards nurses in order to reduce stress and/or preventing burnout. There were two parts to this study, a literary review and a qualitative study. Seventeen articles were reviewed as part of the literary review. The sample group for the qualitative study consisted of ten emergency room nurses. The nurses were asked ten questions prior to implementing changes and then re-interviewed one week after the changes were made. Nine of the ten questions asked were yes and no answers, the answer to the remaining question was put into one of three possible categories. Results from this questions were plotted out into two charts. First chart, bar column chart with the results from 9 out of the 10 questions. Second chart, a pie chart with the results of hours of sleep. Two changes were made to increase nurse appreciation. Recognition at monthly staff meetings and a staff appreciation bulletin board were both created with the intentions to increase morale, and show appreciation towards staff. Results from the changes showed an increase in job satisfaction and a decrease in stress. Study limitations were the size of group surveyed, all nurses worked in a local area hospital, and all nurses surveyed worked evenings and nights. Nursing is a career of many sacrifices, hard work and high levels of stress. Burn out can happen to anyone but management can help prevent burnout with simple gestures of great importance. The intention of this study is to show how appreciation techniques can help decrease stress, and prevent burnout by increasing morale.

Focuses on nurturing the emotional health of patients and families to ensure improved outcomes This innovative clinical practice resource for neonatal nurses embodies family-centered care strategies for optimal outcomes through every phase of the NICU experience. While rigorous programs provide the knowledge and skills to care for the physical needs of high-risk mothers and neonates, NICU practitioners often find themselves unprepared to support the emotional health of these patients and their families. Care Coordination in the NICU provides the education, inspiration, and resources to NICU health professionals so they can learn how to be emotionally supportive to their patient’s entire family unit. The book addresses a variety of challenging patient and family issues that occur in the NICU as they relate to care coordination throughout the process. Each chapter focuses on a particular area of the perinatal/neonatal family journey, and includes current medical research, clinical examples, and recommendations for best practice alongside case studies that depict families experiencing a perinatal challenge. Most valuable of all, each chapter also includes stories directly from the source, the families, who have experienced the fear, isolation, and uncertainly of an NICU experience, and have greatly benefited from the emotional support of caring practitioners. Key Features: Examines the gamut of challenging patient and family issues that occur in the NICU as they relate to care coordination throughout the process Helps practitioners to incorporate family-centered care into their daily practices Discusses effective listening and communication strategies for families in crisis Includes examples of practice improvement strategies to improve clinical outcome and reduce the risk of re-hospitalization Provides a Case-Based Learning section depicting real-world scenarios for discussion and problem-solving Includes links to abundant resources and educational material Contains chapters on palliative care and bereavement and supporting patients with special challenges.

This book is about the most common issues that confront a nurse on a daily basis. It can cause him or her heartaches, heartbreaks, and heart troubles. Stress is, by far, in my opinion, a leading cause of heart problems, sickness, and depression in this country. In this book, I talk about awareness in our hospitals, clinics, and emergency departments. Everyone should feel comfortable and be confident of the nurse treating you or your loved ones; we must also remember that nurses are also human beings with issues and problems like everyone else in this world. This book is also a valuable asset to any nursing student considering going to nursing school or college to study medicine.

“This 5th edition is an important achievement; it is a symbol of commitment to the field of palliative nursing, where we have been and where we are going.” - Betty Rolling Ferrell, PhD, MA, FAAN, FPCN, CHPN From the Foreword The aging population has only grown since the first edition of this comprehensive and seminal publication nearly 20 years ago. Based on the need to humanize rather than medicalize the illness experience for patients, this text delves into palliative care beyond the specific diseases affecting the patient. Instead, content focuses on the whole person and family. Palliative patients struggle with chronic, debilitating, and painful conditions, and grapple with the fact that life as they knew it has already passed away. Families and friends reciprocally suffer, not knowing how to help and therefore become the secondary victims of the disease. This is not the challenge of a lone nurse, or a single physician, therapist, or social worker. Rather, palliative and hospice care requires the expertise and unique roles of an interprofessional team to help the patient and family strengthen their resilience, continue to find meaning and purpose in life, and cure what can be cured. Palliative Care Nursing, Fifth Edition, delivers advanced empirical, aesthetic, ethical and personal knowledge. This new edition brings an increased focus on outcomes, benchmarking progress, and goals of care. It expounds upon the importance of the cross-disciplinary collaboration introduced in the previous edition. Every chapter in Sections I, II, and III includes content written by a non-nursing member of the interprofessional team. Based on best-evidence and clinical practice guidelines, this text presents comprehensive, targeted interventions responsive to the needs of palliative and hospice patients and family. Each chapter contains compassionate, timely, appropriate, and cost-effective care for diverse populations across the illness trajectory. Key Features The expanded new edition offers current, comprehensive, one-stop source of highly-relevant clinical information on palliative care Life-span approach: age-appropriate nursing considerations (e.g. geriatric, pediatric and family) Includes disease-specific and symptom-specific nursing management chapters Promotes a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to palliative care Offers important legal, ethical and cultural considerations related to death and dying Case Studies with Case Study Conclusion in each clinical chapter New to The Fifth Edition: An expanded chapter on Palliative Care incorporates most up to date scope and standards, information on Basic and Advanced HPNA certification, self-reflection and self-care for nurses.

Written primarily by individuals with hands-on hospice experience, this crucial volume identifies sources of stress among hospice workers and provides workers and managers with strategies to cope with those stressors. It is an enlightening examination of diverse theoretical perspectives and a much needed investigation on stress and burnout for hospice providers and caregivers. Readers will find concrete suggestions for the alleviation of stress and burnout in their work with the terminally ill, as well as theoretical and research discussions. The authors explore a wide range of subjects and problems faced by nurses, physicians, social workers, caregivers, hospice directors, and volunteers. They also discuss the many factors in hospice care that may foster unfavorable stress reactions and eventual burnout among hospice professionals. Current literature on job stress and burnout among those who care for the terminally ill is examined and a model of stress and burnout specific to hospice caregivers is presented. The authoritative chapters also identify theories of stress and burnout and the distinction between the two. Anyone who deals with chronic and terminal illness should read Stress and Burnout Among Providers Caring for the Terminally Ill and Their Families. Hospice caregivers and volunteers, social works, clergy, and health care professionals who work with cancer, renal dialysis, and heart and stroke patients will appreciate the attention given to a subject that has received little study.
