Patient-Nurse Imbalance Stresses English Nurses

As per a study published in the British Medical Journal, it has been revealed that nurses in England have less job satisfaction than their counterparts working in other European countries. Researchers from the University of Southampton and King’s College London conducted a survey and found that the nurses in England are not satisfied with their jobs.

In order to reach the conclusion, they surveyed more than 2,900 nurses at 46 hospitals. The survey result was then compared to the data of 11 other European countries, which included more than 15,000 nurses.

Lead researcher Peter Griffiths, who is the chairman of health services research at Southampton University, revealed that 78% of nurses in Greece were found to be stressed out from their current jobs, then came England where 42% nurses were quite unsatisfied with their jobs, and then it was Ireland where 41% nurses were burn out with their jobs.

In addition, it has also been revealed that the majority of nurses working in England do not have trust in the management and especially on hospital managers. In fact, patients were also of the view that they are not confident about the aftermath level of care.

The authors said, “It is also clear that England’s nurses are working in highly pressurized environments, resulting in lower levels of job satisfaction and greater ‘burnout’ compared to some other European health economies”.

Lizzie Jelfs, who is the director of policy at the Council of Deans of Health, was of the view that it is happening due to rise in job cuts. There is a complete outbalance when it comes to patient-nurse ratio. This is the reason that nurses remain burn out and the only solution to solve the problem is to increase the number of nurses in hospitals.
