Nurses play a critical role in the healthcare industry. They provide direct patient care, manage medications, and coordinate treatments with other healthcare professionals. Nurses are the backbone of any healthcare system, and their services are indispensable in ensuring patients’ well-being. However, nurses working in public hospitals of New York Health and Hospitals (NYHH) face several challenges that can impact their work and well-being. In this blog, we will discuss some of the problems faced by RNs working for NYHH and how our staffing company ensures that our nurses do not face these problems.
One of the primary challenges faced by RNs working for NYHH is understaffing. Understaffing is a common issue in public hospitals, and it can have severe consequences for patients and staff. When hospitals are understaffed, nurses have to work long hours and care for more patients than they can handle. This situation can lead to nurse burnout, stress, and fatigue. It can also compromise the quality of care provided to patients, which can have serious health consequences.
To ensure that our RNs do not face understaffing, our staffing company uses a rigorous hiring process to select the best candidates for the job. We have a team of experienced recruiters who carefully screen candidates to ensure that they have the necessary skills and experience to work in a fast-paced hospital environment. Our recruitment process also includes checking references and conducting background checks to ensure that our nurses have clean records and are dependable.
Another problem faced by RNs working for NYHH is workplace violence. Nurses often deal with patients who are emotionally distressed or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In some cases, these patients can become violent and pose a threat to the nurses’ safety. Workplace violence can cause physical and emotional trauma, which can lead to long-term health problems.
At our staffing company, we take workplace violence seriously and have implemented several measures to protect our nurses. We provide our nurses with training on how to de-escalate volatile situations and respond to violence. We also ensure that our nurses have access to personal protective equipment and security personnel who can respond quickly to any threats.
Another challenge faced by RNs working for NYHH is the high workload. Nurses often have to juggle multiple tasks simultaneously, including administering medications, providing emotional support to patients and families, and communicating with other healthcare professionals. The high workload can lead to stress and burnout, which can have negative consequences for patient care.
To ensure that our RNs do not face a high workload, we provide them with support and resources to manage their workload effectively. We offer our nurses training on time management, prioritization, and delegation. We also provide them with access to technology that can help streamline their work and reduce the administrative burden.
Finally, RNs working for NYHH also face challenges related to communication and collaboration. Nurses often work with other healthcare professionals, including doctors, therapists, and social workers. Effective communication and collaboration are critical to providing quality patient care. However, miscommunication and lack of collaboration can lead to errors, delays, and poor patient outcomes.
To ensure that our RNs have effective communication and collaboration skills, we provide them with training on teamwork, conflict resolution, and effective communication. We also encourage our nurses to participate in team-building activities and to engage in regular communication with their colleagues and other healthcare professionals to promote a culture of collaboration and effective communication within our organization.
