Burnout rates are escalating among physicians, as well as other healthcare workers. In a system that is already stressed by many forces, losing any member of the team can have devastating consequences. Nurses are a prime example of how they are expected to do more and more work with less and less help and resources. Hospitals cut back on their ranks to save money. And patients suffer because of it. Big organizations do not so much care about the health of these nurses who selflessly try to give patients their best. Rather, the bottom line dictates staffing standards.
