    Scarcity of nurses in our hospital. How to deal with such a situation?

    I am a doctor working in a private hospital. I have noticed that there is a scarcity of nurses in our hospital and thus this leads to a lot of difficulties for the doctors. I think that this is not fair and the hospital should have adequate staff. How to deal with such a situation?

    As you are working in private hospital there are chances that the hospital is not willing to recruit nurses to save their investment in the hospital as

    more the staff more they have to pay and also have to bear other expenses related to them. But the hospital administration must understand to

    provide atleast an adequate amount of nurses so that the patients could be properly given the required services. You and your colleagues must to

    take this matter to administration and put forward your difficulties in your work due to less nurses. Tell them that you are not able to provide the

    treatments properly due to lack of nurses. Also tell them such things also effects the reputation of the hospital. Tell them that they should atleast

    increase the staff so that proper services can be given to the patients.

    If you all will put the problem together than the message with proper pressure would be send to the administrators and they will definitely take

    adequate steps to solve the problem. Keep in mind if you want to have the problem solved easily and fast than you also will need to tell them the

    benefits to the hospital that will occur due to the steps taken in the favor of increasing the nurse step. As in private hospitals running hospital is just

    like running a business so all the decisions are taken that increases the profit of the hospital. So it would be better that before going to them you

    prepare some points that shows the benefits to the hospital in increasing the staff.

    This is one of the serious issue since nurses are considered as the vital part of any health care organization and if they are only not present in adequate numbers,the entire medication process of the concerned organization gets a setback.You being a doctor of the nursing home should look into this matter seriously and take the necessary steps for the benefit of the organization as well as the patients who come for their treatment.

    If this matter is not resolved now,it can definitely put its adverse effects not only on the patients but also the entire organization in the long run.The scarcity of nurses can result into improper care of the patients and as a result the goodwill of the nursing home in the market will be hampered to a great extent.Even the present nurses can seek for some better opportunity in some other nursing home where there is less working pressure inorder to get rid of the high working pressure in the present nursing home due to scarcity of nurses.

    -You along with other doctors and nurses should discuss over this matter.
    -Formulate a petition for the higher authority regarding this issue.
    -Highlight the immediate requirement of nurses in the nursing home.
    -Explain the reasons for such immediate requirement.
    -Highlight the negative aspects of such scarcity of nurses.
    -Request them to look into this matter seriously and ake a fresh recruitment as soon as possible.

    To work successfully with full of interest a company or firm or organization needs employees in enough numbers because work should be done on time and if the work will not be done on time, your company may face the loss in the current competitive market that is why if you are worried about the insufficiency of nurses in the hospital then you should not worry about this and just write a letter to the head of the hospital and mention your problem and your all colleagues should be with you in this case because every doctor is having problem and being labored more than enough and go to the head of the hospital and let them know about this and if they will see all doctors together then will definitely think over this issue and higher some new nurses in the hospital for your help and support in your work and study and if they do not think about this then you must stop working in that hospital then they will come on the line and will give you enough facilities

    All the best

    hello,
    yes if their is a scarcity of nurses then you should directly meet your hospital director or head of the hospital and explain your situation in a humble and requested way so that he listens carefully about your situation and respond in a good way.
    you can also provide an all doctors meeting and discuss about it and try to find out a solution about this.
    thank you........

    Hello Doctor..

    It's really Unfair as you said.. It is very difficult without the help of nurse... In such case here are some of them I could suggest you...

    - As this is a problem of all the doctors (i.e., as every doctor is facing the same problem) , do arrange a small meeting in free hours and see to it that you all come to a single decision..

    - After the decision is final, Either arrange an another meeting including your higher authority or make a note on behalf of all the doctors, and let them now about the problem you are facing...

    - But make sure all this happen in a polite way..

    Hope this will help you...

    ThanQ...
