New Nurse Satisfaction Survey by LNC STAT Shows Alarming Results

December 3, 2018

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2018--Nursing is not easy, but few really know just how hard it is for Nurses. This new survey offers some insight into where patient care may be breaking down, and some common nursing hardships such as burn-out, bullying, work-related injuries, and job safety issues. The results show that a large majority of Nurses are not happy with their working conditions, resulting in low morale amongst the nursing community, and a negative effect on the quality of care that patients receive.

Facilities and administrations are notorious for their cost cutting practices that often have a detrimental effect on their Nurses and the quality of healthcare they are capable of providing. This new survey released by LNC STAT shows just how difficult the working conditions for Nurses can be.

“It is widely accepted that Nurses are the backbone of healthcare, but at what point is healthcare taking advantage of them? These results show that more has to be done.” - Veronica Castellana, LNC STAT Owner

This survey was conducted from May 19, 2018 to October 21, 2018. A variety of Nurses throughout the United States at varying points in their careers responded, ranging from clinically practicing to retired more than 5 years. The results give a concerning peak into just how many hardships Nurses must endure on a regular basis, and how far away healthcare is from ensuring the protection of its members.
