Identifying the Signs of Clinician Burnout June 14, 2017

Kensington, 13
Identifying the Signs of Clinician Burnout, 13, Maryland

A condition called clinician burnout is becoming prevalent among healthcare workers in the U.S. It’s caused by a combination of too much paperwork, not enough time with patients, and insufficient time away from work to recharge from the pressure of the job. When a physician is stressed and disengaged, everyone from the patient to the hospital is at risk.

Below, the healthcare peer advisory group Metro Collaborative™ identifies some crucial signs that you suffer from clinician burnout:

Exhaustion

One of the key indicators of clinician burnout is exhaustion, whether it’s physical, emotional, or both. Working in the healthcare industry is draining, and if you don’t get the chance to recharge between long shifts, it can have a snowball effect.

Clinician BurnoutDisillusionment

Healthcare is a meaningful profession, and many clinicians get involved because of a desire to help people. If you start to feel like your work is valueless or lose sight of how important it is, it’s time to take a step back and consider that you may be experiencing physician burnout.

Negative Attitude

If you develop a negative attitude toward your career, that’s a clear sign of clinician burnout. If you start viewing patients as numbers rather than individuals or you catch yourself trivializing their health concerns, you should seek professional help to relieve stress and put things into perspective.

When you’re experiencing clinician burnout, it’s common to feel isolated—especially if you manage a private practice. Making connections with peers in the healthcare industry can not only boost your business, it can also provide you with a professional outlet and a way to relieve stress. Metro Collaborative™ organizes intimate networking dinners, collaborative retreats, and coaching services for local clinician owners.
