The Impact of Clinician Burnout

If not addressed, clinical burnout can become a vicious cycle for healthcare providers. Burnout leads to high turnover rates resulting in a shortage of skilled workers, leading to further burnout for those still on staff. What does all this mean for patients? Decreased quality of care, longer wait times, and increased healthcare costs.

In addition to the impact on patient care, clinical burnout has had a significant financial impact on the healthcare industry. Aside from high costs associated with turnover, burnout can lead to increased absenteeism and decreased job satisfaction, all impacting on the overall costs of providing care.

Addressing clinical burnout is crucial for health systems for not only ensuring high-quality patient care but to ensure fiscal responsibility.
