Fewer Nurses believe employer values their safety; New Survey

 

A recent survey of nurses shows that fewer than half believe their organization values their safety and health, a drop of more than 20% in three years.

Researchers at the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses in October conducted an online survey of more than 9,300 nurses. Of those, 47% agreed with the statement, “My organization values my health and safety.” That’s down from 68% in the association’s 2018 survey.

 

Feeling safe and valued also had the highest correlation to job satisfaction, according to an AACN press release.

“Creating and sustaining healthy work environments is everyone’s responsibility, and this requires changing long-standing cultures, traditions and hierarchies,” principal investigator and registered nurse Beth Ulrich said in the release. “The benefits of doing so are increasingly clear, as are the consequences of inaction.”
