Seems that nurses - not only me- "beat themselves up" when they cannot complete all their tasks by the end of the day. Striving to better organize the work flow my resolve some of this anxiety causing problem

The culture of safety can be established by strong leadership. A leader does not just have rhetoric, but a team in which this culture is maintained in every routine.

As far as I remember I am one of the participant who participated on this study. I am grateful that our officials in ANNA are doing something for our safety as Nurses. Because most of the time they're only focusing on patient's not on the caregiver's safety. A lot of policies, rules and laws were created and implemented for patient's safety but forgot the Nurse's safety. Kudos to our Nurses/officials who thought about this idea of this Study.

This article reminded me that I need to try harder to consistently recognize our acute dialysis staff and can always improve on my communication skills.
