How to Reduce Nurse Burnout in Post-Acute Care
Studies have shown that today’s hospice and home health leaders worry more about staffing concerns than any other issue, including financial challenges and patient experience. And for good reason: nurse burnout and turnover have been wreaking havoc on the healthcare industry for years, and COVID-19 has only strengthened the blow. Discover the specific causes of burnout, how to recognize them, and strategies to reduce nurse burnout in home-based care – including leveraging an outsourced team of experts to manage after-hours care delivery.
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.
