There isn't a true answer that fits all the stress that health care can cause, this is for sure. But, I do feel that there are key elements to maintain a lesser stress environment for both the workers and the facility/company as a whole. These are simple, yet very complex as we all know the challenges are great at maintaining these:
1. Ethical/Integrity - allows for clear head and better sleep
2. Quality in the care provided - allows for the least complaints thus more productive energy at making processes even better and more efficient
3. cost savings - to always be outside the box looking at the challenges your facing and to realize there are many improvements that can be made even if the mountains we must climb are not the same ones we are willing to die on....
I hope this helps, know you are not alone and the cloud of stress over so many workers can often be brought upon ourselves unless we practice good ethical quality driven health care.
