Why do nurses need transport buddies?
Globally, there is an all-time high shortage of nurses. In the EU, the shortage is anticipated to reach 2.3M by 2030, and in Denmark alone since 2001, the activity growth in hospitals is 4 times the number of nurses.
An international survey of 2,500 nurses in July 2022 reported that 64% of nurses are looking to leave the healthcare profession, a nearly 40% increase from the surveys conducted in 2021. Three-quarters of those surveyed admitted having experienced burnout, experienced trauma, extreme stress or PTSD.
Surveying nurses different Danish Hospitals, we found that nurses spend only 40.1% of their time with the patient.
