How to Prevent Nurse Burnout and Reduce Alarm Fatigue in Nursing

Between overhead call systems, pages, texts, phone calls, and the constant beeps of patient monitors, the hospital environment is a noisy place. Clinical alarms are a major contributor – but most of them are false or non-actionable.

Alarm fatigue in nursing is the phenomenon that occurs when nurses are exposed to multiple alarms of mixed significance and become desensitized to safety alarms due to the sheer number of alerts they receive.

Nurses who are experiencing alarm fatigue are at higher risk for burnout, an issue compounded by the ongoing nursing shortage, heavy workloads, and inefficient nursing workflows.

Healthcare leaders looking to curb nurse burnout within their organizations must address the underlying causes that are negatively impacting job satisfaction and nurses’ mental health.
