All healthcare architects, healthcare engineers, patients, nurses, and physicians know what it is like to be in a hospital. However, all of these people have different perceptions of their hospital and their time while there. An architect has designed the hospital but has possibly never stayed in any of the hospitals they have designed. The engineers know the ins-and-outs of the design. The physicians and nurses are the ones who work long shifts each day in the hospital. And finally, the patients are the ones who stay in the hospital during their sickness with their families alongside them. Each and every one of these different experiences should be taken into consideration.
Nurses dedicate their lives to helping others! This can cause a number of different stress factors, both physically and emotionally. We all know that everyone gets stressed and has common everyday tension within their lives, but intense stress over a long period of time can affect someone differently than day-to-day factors. When a nurse is burned out, it can lead to dulled emotions and less empathy towards their patients and their overall career.
As a nurse, you are in charge of several different patients who all have their own needs. Some may need more specialized care than others and this is hard to deal with when paperwork is not done, x-rays are lost, and you are behind on other daily tasks. On average nurses only get to spend about 40 minutes with each patient per day. On the other hand, the daily tasks of entering data and patient information takes up about 33 percent of a nurse's time. This is why it is so important that Directors of Nurses and the hospital overall find ways to help nurses spend more time with their patients.
