Effects of burnout on nursing practice
Summary:
Introduction: The Covid-19 pandemic has been an important factor in the emergence and further increase of burnout syndrome in nurses, which has been reported to lead to significant negative effects on nursing practice.
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to examine the effects of burnout on nursing practice.
Material and methodology: The quantitative method was used with the following questionnaires: a questionnaire investigating the demographic and professional characteristics of the respondents, a questionnaire on aspects of nursing practice, the Copenhagen Burnout Inventory, the Better Nursing Questionnaire to measure nursing practice. The sample consisted of 313 nurses at Sismanoglio and Elpis hospitals. The time-period for the survey was 30.01.2023-28.02.2023.
Results: A moderate level of burnout of the sample nurses was found. Also, a statistically significant negative correlation was found between person-centered nursing and burnout as experienced by the individual from interacting with patients (p=0.014), between preventive nursing and burnout as experienced by the individual from interacting with patients (p=0.001), as well as between the overall nursing practice and burnout as experienced by the individual from interacting with patients (p=0.007). In addition, a statistically significant negative correlation was found between preventive nursing and overall burnout (p=0.006). In contrast, no correlation was found between nursing specialization and overall burnout or aspects thereof (p>0.05). Finally, a statistically significant correlation was found between the dimensions and total burnout with aspects of nursing practice (p<0.05), with the exception of the absence of a correlation between total burnout and errors in diagnosis (p>0.05), but also between burnout as experienced by the individual while in the work environment and errors in blood donation (p>0.05). Gender, educational level, marital status, existence of children, years of service, work unit, permanent or non-permanent job, were found to differentiate the level of burnout overall and/or in some of its dimensions (p<0.05).
Conclusions: Burnout is negatively associated with aspects of nursing practice, including errors, while gender and working with SARS-Cov2 patients are determinants of burnout. On this basis, proposals are submitted to increase the resilience of nurses and create a favorable working environment.
