Nurses are Now Working Under Very Damaging Conditions-A New Report has Warned

A lot of people now believe that urgent action is needed in order to stop high levels of nurse stress, intentions to quit and turnover. Studies have reported that all of this has been exacerbated by the current pandemic. A blueprint which has been published today has shown that a think tank has actually called an organisation to see if it can be transformed. This is being done to see if staff burnout and exhaustion can be eliminated. They have stated that they need to try and create environments where culture and staff can flourish, but right now, that is proving to be difficult. The report, which is called the Courage of Compassion has ultimately meant that nurses and midwives have now been able to deliver very high-quality care.

The report has been decommissioned by the RCN Foundation and it shows a lot of the problems that are leading to the very things we are seeing right now. The report included those who work in a nurse agency or even those who are seeking a nursing recruitment agency too.
Absenteeism, intentions to quit, turnover and even staff stress are now at alarmingly high levels and that now large numbers of nurses and midwives are being forced to rethink their plans. The pandemic has certainly made it a lot worse for people and it has also showed the inequalities that people are going through. Excessive work pressure has also been added on top of this and it just goes to show that the industry has been overlooked for quite some time. If the workplace is to be transformed and if positive change is to be made then it’s important to implement the practical suggestions that have been made in the report.
