Nurses are the backbone of the healthcare system. When they're feeling overworked, physically/mentally exhausted and unappreciated, it diminishes staff morale and can result in resignations and instability in the workplace. Employers, supervisors, and managers should take preventative actions to reduce this outcome.
When there is so much focus on patient satisfaction, we understand that it is essential to know that employees are also satisfied. Below is a list of ways to make nurses’ work life more enjoyable and possibly prevent burnout amidst daily chaos.
Implement Adaptable Products
The neck wallet lanyard is there for you when you’re in a new setting and are trying to prevent easily misplacing important items. Consider this type of lanyard to keep all your necessary documents and nursing licenses in one place. The front pocket has a transparent sleeve that can display your ID or vaccine card, and the main compartment can hold all your other credentials and credit cards or cash. It can conveniently be worn around your neck, so all your items are within reach.
B-REEL badge reels are some of the most secure and twist-free badge reels. The retractable cord extracts from the front, causing less friction and extending the life of the reel. It is also equipped with a clear vinyl strap that attaches easily to any ID badge. We have a great selection of colors that makes it easier for individuals to pick their most desirable shade.
Acknowledge Hard Work
Though it may be an expectation that people will come to work and work hard, sometimes not everyone does. When you notice that people come to work and give you 100 percent, acknowledge it! It may be more likely they’ll work just as hard next time when doing so. Make sure and remind them of the importance of their work, and show them appreciation regularly!
Provide Personalized Tools
Badges holders are a vital statement piece in a nurse’s outfit. It is undeniable that getting a personalized gift is the best way to express your love to that special nurse. Personalized gifts resonate with people’s emotions, showing how much they mean to you and the community, and help spread love, which is something everyone should emphasize.
Give your nurses an extra break during difficult and stressful days, and an additional 10-15 minutes could make a world of a difference. Simply having regular talks about how they deal with stress or having their opinion on what could make their days at work easier can ensure you stay connected to your employee’s mental well-being.
Overworked nurses are at risk for fatigue that can lead to burnout, which can jeopardize the health of patients and possibly damage their own mental and physical well-being. By implementing new tools and adding a few new practices, nurses can secure some space in their schedules for rejuvenation and relaxation.
Make sure you are ahead and discover how you can change the outcome. We encourage you to head to the Specialist ID website to shop for any listed products.
