Abstract (300 words maximum)

BACKGROUND

The Covid-19 pandemic has drawn more attention to burnout, a self-reported job-related syndrome experienced by registered nurses. Despite studies showing that poor self-health and job satisfaction are associated with registered nurses’ burnout, little synthesized evidence is known about the impact on patient’s safety and satisfaction, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

OBJECTIVE

To determine the impact of registered nurse burnout on patient safety and satisfaction.

METHODS

Through the guidance of our PRISMA 2020 statement, a systematic review was performed. The databases; Pubmed, ScienceDirect, Cochrane Library, Pubmed Central, and MEDLINE were searched using specific keywords to find relevant studies. Fifteen of the articles retrieved met the specified criteria required to be included in the systematic review. The criteria included articles that: are less than 10 years old, discussed nursing burnout, discussed patient safety in relation to nursing burnout, only included bedside nurses, only scholarly peer reviewed articles, and only studies with quantitative study methods.

RESULTS

Some of the studies revealed an increased burnout among registered nurses resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. The reviewed studies showed burnout among registered nurses is positively correlated with poor patient satisfaction. Additionally, some of the studies show patient safety is negatively impacted when nurses are experiencing burnout.

CONCLUSION

The findings of the current systematic literature review suggest that patient safety and satisfaction are negatively impacted by the experience of burnout among registered nurses. Thus, there is an urgent need to have interventions to prevent and mitigate burnout among registered nurses.
