Abstract

Multiple studies have been conducted to investigate Registered Nurse burnout, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19), and patient care. This article is an examination of literature discussing Registered Nurse burnout, Covid-19, and quality of patient care to determine the correlation and causation between the three topics. Within the context of today, these research topics are significant to determine conclusions and recommendations on prevention of nurse burnout and quality of patient care. Previous literature indicates an increase in workload, poor staffing, and emotional stress as causes of Registered Nurse burnout. Furthermore, Registered Nurse burnout suggests a decrease in quality patient care. The indications for Registered Nurse burnout and decreased quality of patient care can be correlated to the Covid-19 pandemic, as the healthcare field has been placed under continuous stressors. These findings indicate a positive correlation between Registered Nurse burnout, Covid-19, and reduced quality of patient care. Based upon these findings, recommendations can be made to reduce poor retention numbers of Registered Nurses and poor patient care. These recommendations include, but are not limited to, adequate staffing, mental health advocacy, evidence-based practice, and effective healthcare administration/leadership.

Key Words: Registered Nurse, patient care, Covid-19, literature review
