How to Reduce Nurse Burnout in Post-Acute Care

Effects of Nurse Shortages and Compassion Fatigue

While hospice and home health nursing is meaningful work, it is also incredibly demanding, especially during the ongoing clinician staffing shortage, when there are fewer team members to share the burden. With staff nurses experiencing workplace-related stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue at a greater degree than ever, organizations need a solution that eases the burden on their nurses – without a hit to their bottom line or patient experience.
