oa Journal of Management & Administration - Contributing factors of stress on the work performance of nursing managers at a selected clinic in the Capricorn Health District in Limpopo



Professional consequences of burnout among the nurses have serious implications not only for the health and well-being of nurses but also for health and safety of patients. In the case of health care professionals the consequences of stress can be analysed from a personal or professional point of view. Some of these consequences include addictive behaviour such as increased substance misuse amongst health care professionals. Professional consequences may include absenteeism from work and decreased productivity both of which can cause increased workload for co-workers and also has a potential to comprise patient safety.
