Burnout in the NICU setting and its relation to safety culture.
The objectives of this study are three-fold: to test the psychometric properties of a brief four-item burnout scale; to provide neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) burnout and resilience benchmarking data across different units and caregiver types; and to examine the relationships between caregiver burnout and patient safety culture. The authors found that NICU caregiver burnout appears to have 'climate-like' features, is prevalent, and is associated with lower perceptions of patient safety culture.
