How RTLS Technology Can Help Reduce Nurse Burnout
The last two years have been especially hard on my fellow nurses. Dealing with effects of COVID, including staffing shortages, budget cuts, and emotional drama, put additional stress on already overworked nurses.
Reducing stress at work starts with the ability to control the situation. As an ED nurse, I understand the difficulty in the predictability of patient volumes and clinical paths; however, if we can provide nurses with the visibility of what is happening in the moment – how many patients are waiting and for how long, what is the up-to-date availability of “resources” – clinical and ancillary staff, and medical equipment – I know that we can reduce the amount of pressure put on our nurses.
