A maior susceptibilidade a lesões e doenças

por Joseph Kasperski (2017-10-24)


The most common reason for absenteeism in a nursing profession is sickness (e.g., contagious diseases) which is quite obvious considering the environment nurses work in. But there is one rarely mentioned contributing factor and that is work overload. Public healthcare sectors in most countries are underfinanced and nursing personnel is underpaid. This results in nursing shortages and adds to extreme exhaustion of nursing personnel which in turn leads to higher susceptibility to injuries and sickness.
