BURR RIDGE, IL, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — The high degree of burnout in frontline nursing staff is not surprising. Emergency department volumes are up, staffing ratios are down, and waiting rooms are packed. Sadly, uncivil patients are typical, verbal abuse is rampant, and physical harm to staff sometimes occurs.
Research shows that frequent praise from patients mitigates burnout. Gratitude nurtures self-confidence, enhances job satisfaction and retention, and restores a sense of joy in the workplace, making it easy to be kind to patients.
