Caring for the Caregiver
Fatigue has been identified as a contributing factor in nurse burnout with a negative impact on awareness, emotions and cognitive performance. Reducing nurse fatigue remains a constant priority for organizations such as the American Nurses Association, Joint Commission and the Institute of Medicine. More than ever, we are mindful of caring for the caregiver - and their level of care is directly impacted by their environment and how they feel cared for.
Making Informed Decisions
- Types of nurse fatigue – physical, cognitive, emotional and psychosocial
- An often under-appreciated element in the built environment, flooring selection can have a substantial impact on nurse fatigue
- Within the health system, staffing is resolute in optimizing clinical efficiency through the lens of reducing costs and improving patient outcomes
- It is essential to understand the flooring material’s innate performance characteristics as these attributes impact both environmental and human health
- Making informed product decisions can have an actionable impact on supporting staff retention hiring, and the health system’s financial viability overall
