Nurses are undeniably the backbone of the hospital. For the last 16 years, nursing has held the highest position on Gallup’s annual survey of the public’s trust in occupation—high above positions such as doctors, lawyers, pharmacists and bankers. And that trust is well-deserved: nurses tend to patients’ wounds, administer medications, educate patients about medical tests and treatments, celebrate births and remarkable recoveries, and provide comfort for those facing disappointing news or hard decisions.
But nursing is also a challenging profession: in addition to the long hours and fast-paced environment, nurses can also face obstacles such as inadequate staffing and difficult patients. Moreover, necessary regulations related to quality improvement, patient safety, data capture and technology integration mean a nurse’s day-to-day workflow is intense. Studies reveal that nurses are at a high risk for sleep disorders, depression and other diseases.
Research shows that happier nurses mean happier and safer patients. Improving the patient experience and prioritizing patient safety begins with nurse satisfaction. When nurses feel empowered and satisfied with their jobs, the quality of care they provide improves. Help improve nurses’ job satisfaction at your facility with these three strategies.
At Amplion, we believe that nurses are the backbone of the hospital and we celebrate the work they do to provide high-quality patient care in hospitals and healthcare facilities around the world.
