You cannot pound in teamwork enough. There have been times when I have come into my shift and have a nurse be completely apologetic because they had their butts handed to them and did not get their “required” tasks done. My response, it is a 24 hour job. Another tidbit, it does not matter how much you think you know, you do not know it all. If a colleague makes a mistake, go to them before “writing them up”. Yes, there is a time and place for that, but as soon as you think you know it all and feel the desire to “report” the people you work with, well, karma is a good lesson teacher…..
There are a number of interventions that can mitigate the occupational hazards of nursing. They can be individual-focused or organization-focused. Individual-focused interventions include stress management programs, which can be customized to individuals. Stress management programs can reduce anxiety, sleep disorders, and other symptoms of stress. Organizational interventions focus on reducing stressful aspects of the work environment by defining stressful characteristics and developing solutions to them. Using organizational and individual interventions together is most effective at reducing stress on nurses.
