Burnout has traditionally been considered an individual’s private problem. On the surface this appears to be an issue only for the individuals suffering from burnout. The truth is that burnout impacts not only the individual suffering from it; it also impacts everyone that interacts with that person. In healthcare, the impact is even more complicated. Research demonstrates that burnout among healthcare workers affects not only the individual but also has a negative impact on teams, units, facilities, and the patients they serve.
