Feedtrail and HOLLIBLU release results from the second nationwide survey highlighting the importance of enhancing nurse well-being amid COVID-19 and beyond.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.  May 20, 2020

The increasing prevalence of nurse burnout has led to skyrocketing rates of attrition and has recently worsened due to the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, mental health and the well-being of nurses has become a critical concern. That’s why nurse community and technology app, HOLLIBLU, in partnership with real-time patient and clinician experience platform provider, Feedtrail, launched a 2nd nationwide “pulse” survey as part of #NursesWeek2020. In the first 24 hours alone, we received more than 1,000 responses from nurses across all 50 states!

Our analysis of the survey results provides healthcare systems with the actionable insights they need to address these concerns and support patient care professionals in the wake of COVID-19 and beyond.

Key findings of the second survey were staggering:

  • 61% reported still wanting to leave the industry all together as a result of their experiences during the COVID-19 crisis
  • 46% of respondents said they ARE likely to leave their current position or specialty
  • 50% of respondents reported experiencing high levels of anxiety and emotional stress
  • According to these nurses, this significantly manifests into secondary symptoms such as inability to concentrate and feeling distracted

100% of healthcare HR leaders agree that improving employee engagement in order to increase patient satisfaction is aTOP PRIORITY.

If you want your organization to deliver high-quality care post COVID-19, you must keep both nurses AND clinicians engaged and feeling supported. In order to do so, organizations have to be mindful of what they actually need; healthcare leaders must understand the pulse of their healthcare employees so they can be prepared to keep caregivers satisfied and supported to ensure they are delivering the highest quality care possible.
