Stress has numerous devastating effects on an individual especially healthcare worker, however, enhancing psychological readiness may facilitate an individual ability to deal with stress in a workplace. Improving productivity in a workplace, department scheduling and stress management techniques must be evaluated among healthcare workers. Respiratory care department must demonstrate their values by implementing strategies that will aid their staffs in decreasing the number of tasks given to each therapist daily or per shift. Respiratory care departments heads (managers and supervisors), Chief of Nursing and employee health staffs must develop a new strategy to help respiratory therapists (RT) and other healthcare professionals manage their stress levels

This is something that needs to change, calculating staffing base on procedure and specific time standards is causing a lot of issues in the respiratory department scheduling, staffs can become overwhelmed with workload/demand between shifts and find themselves in situations where patient treatments is delayed or patient prioritization policy must be applied, unforeseen circumstance like this may cause an issue ...
