Nurse Fatigue Checklist & Survey
October 14th, 2016

Nurse fatigue in the work setting is shown to contribute to errors in care delivery. Nurse fatigue can compromise patient safety and can be a barrier to delivering high quality patient care.  As a follow-up to a student capstone project, Professor Beth Vottero PhD, RN, CNE, of Purdue Northwest has created a self-assessment checklist of evidence-based criteria found to reduce nurse fatigue when present in hospital systems. There is also a survey, based on the checklist, to collect data on the presence or absence of criteria to reduce fatigue in hospital policies in the state of Indiana. Participation is completely voluntary. No identifiable information will be collected and responses are anonymous. Benefits from participation include increased awareness of evidence-based criteria for reducing nurse fatigue, and understanding of hospital policies that can reduce nurse fatigue and the checklist can be used as a tool to help improve hospital policies.
