Introduction

Nursing just like any profession faces numerous challenges daily. Nurses are usually tasked with the duty to ensure that they work diligently and professionally to ensure that their clients are satisfied with the services that they deliver. They are usually tasked with the duty to ensure that the patients that visit their premises get quality services that they deserve. However, these services come at a cost; they face a myriad of challenges that they have to work fully despite these challenges to satisfy their clients. Therefore, this research paper analysis some of the problems that nurses face in the daily execution of their duties.

Identification of the Problem

Nurse faces a myriad of challenges in their daily execution of duties. To ensure that they discharge their duties perfectly all these challenges must be identified and effective measures are put in place to ensure that the challenges are taken care of. The major problems that most of the medical facilities are the issue of understaffing. Nurses have faced challenges in terms of duties assigned to them in comparison to their numbers. Studies conducted have also portrayed that there are shortages of nurses in the medical facilities. However, the challenges that these nurses face are varied in different nations and towns, there are those nations that have surplus while there are those towns and nations that have a high shortage of these important service providers in the healthcare facilities.

The impact of these shortages has also resulted in further challenges for the nurses. In this regard, one of the major challenges that these nurses face is the need to work for long hours due to the shortage of employees at the medical facilities. The few available nurses must work in shifts and endure long working hours to ensure that they meet the desired goals of the institution are met. The work of nurses calls for one to be sober and cognitive in decision making (McLelland et al. 2015). However, with a situation where nurses are required to work for long hours, work in shifts such that they can sleep for a while and resume their duties. This is a worrying trend for the nurses because their cognitive ability and judgment as normal human beings are likely to decline when overworked. Therefore, the chances of making poor decisions are also likely to increase with time as they work overtime.

Besides that, the shortages of nurses in healthcare facilities which calls for overworking of these nurses to ensure that patients are fully taken care of, usually lead to an increase in hazard and dangerous accidents taking place taking place during their execution of duties. For instance, nurses working in laboratories are exposed to hazardous chemicals, viruses, and pathogens as they seek to unveil the diseases of their patients (Shoorideh et al. 2015). Therefore, if they are overworked they are likely to make mistakes which might result in situations where the nurses might get injured or make the wrong diagnosis for their patients. This is a situation that can make the running of the facility unimaginable due to the prevailing situation.

Significance of the Problem

Nurses are key role players in the successful running of the healthcare facilities. All the healthcare facilities require the services of the nurses to ensure that the needs of the patients are taken care of. In this regard, the problem of understaffing of nurses at the medical institutions is a major problem that these institutions should be able to manage to ensure that the desired results are achieved. Medical facilities require that they use these nurses to discharge their duties perfectly; their shortage is an issue that institutions see a huge challenge towards meeting their goals.

Shortages of nurses in healthcare organizations mean that these institutions are unable to effectively discharge their duties as expected. Experienced nurses have higher chances of perfectly discharging their duties, institutions that have insufficient nurses’ means that they can only meet the ever-increasing number of patients in hospitals by overworking these nurses. Therefore, the chances of making poor decisions as nurses are also high as they get fatigued when they are overworked (Alavi et al. 2015).

The issue of understaffed nurses is an issue of not only an issue of concern by medical facilities but also by the states and health organizations in various sectors. Healthcare is an issue of concern to all individuals as we are all expected to be of good health so that we can produce. States advocate having enough medical staff so that all medical situations can always be easily managed whenever they arise. Adequate nurses in the medical facilities usually make it easier to manage any medical emergencies that might arise thus making it easier to have a healthy nation that’s productive in all corners.

Besides that, understaffed nurses mean that it’s difficult for these professions to have time for their research and improve their skills. Medical facilities are always facing challenges on daily basis; there are medical situations that require substantial time for the nurses to analyze the samples before coming up with a solution to the prevailing situation (Lu et al. 2015). Therefore, in such cases where the number of nurses matters at any medical facility the process of determining the required results is usually difficult for the management. This ends with the facility not being able to satisfy their clients in the long run the facilities end up with reduced clients and low income if it’s a private facility.

Purpose of Research

This research aims to determine the problems that nurse’s face in their daily discharging of duties. Nurses play key roles in our well-being in society and conducting research to determine the problems that they face is only meant to ensure that they improve in the services that they deliver. This study has shown that the major problem that they face is understaffing in most of the nations. Major hospitals have been unable to effectively discharge their duties because they have few nurses to effectively discharge their duties.

Besides that, as a result of this study, relevant institutions and bodies have an opportunity to learn of the challenges that nurse’s face in their daily discharge of duties. In this regard, learning of the shortages of the nurses in the medical facilities indicates that relevant bodies and institutions should play their roles perfectly towards ensuring that there are adequate and qualified nurses for the medical facilities to ensure that at the end the desired goals can always be achieved (Skundberg‐Kletthagen & Moen, 2017). As a result, this study provides an opportunity for the relevant bodies to initiate the right measures that will make it better in the running of the medical facilities.

Research Questions

This research seeks to determine the most effective ways that would ensure there is effective running of the desired goals. Nurses are critical for the provision of medical services in the facility. However, despite enormous studies being done on the roles of nurses in society, there have been limited studies that have been done on the exact challenges that nurses face. Therefore, this study seeks to answer the question, what challenges nurses face in their daily discharge of duties? Besides that, there also the need to answer the question, what are the benefits of having adequate and qualified nurses in the medical facilities?

Effective answering of these questions will provide a clear road map for the future nurses and relevant authorities. This only means that future nurses have a chance to be fully equipped and be well-staffed and experienced as they shall be provided with all the necessary tools and resources that would result in the desired needs of their clients being fully taken care of and on a timely basis.
