Keep nurses and healthcare workers engaged with schedules that prevent fatigue. Learn how Kronos ® can help.
Today more healthcare employees are suffering from burnout, and long hours are a key contributor. Nurses have cited shift work schedules as a leading cause of feeling tired, stressed and fatigued. Many nurses work 12-hour shifts which can disrupt normal sleep patterns, and over time, make workers susceptible to fatigue and high stress levels.
According to a HealthcareSource survey of nurses, 51 percent reportedly leave their jobs because of a perceived poor work environment. The subsequent turnover often has an adverse effect on safety, quality and the hospital's financial performance. While there are many types of scheduling, there are some that in fact lower the chance of fatigue. Recently self-scheduling is gaining in popularity as it offers nurses empowerment, work/life balance and more. Facilities need to understand the role of the work schedule and how they can contribute to fatigue.
