Female nurses reduce burnout in ICU teams


Being childless, working extra hours and days to cover for childminding problems and sickness of a short -term nature, and having the worst shifts over Christmas for the last 38 years, it is no surprise. I guess male staff suffer the same sort of problems. My family life has suffered through this, although I have never worked in ICU, but suspect it relates to all Wards/Depts. Family-friendly only seems to relate to children, not the rest of the family, like husband/wife/partner, siblings and ageing parent(s). Being under 40, I guess is because you have more energy and do more, and as for HCAs (I have empathy), well I have a belief, but perhaps best left without a comment.
