Abstract

An aging workforce and high-stress environments have led to more nurses working with their own health problems, which in turn affects productivity. To assess this issue, the authors conducted focus groups with nurses and nurse managers. The authors discuss their findings and their implications for more proactively addressing issues that relate to health problems in nurses and the workplace changes that are needed to support nurses with health problems to ensure patient safety and quality care.
