I started on a new unit a month ago and hate to say there is a huge morale issue. I frequently hear comments from other nurses about how they hate their jobs, their patients, and the families. It really isn't a terrible unit and not everyone has this attitude, but it's pretty prevalent. I feel like these bad attitudes can affect patient care (we're a large urban ICU and that's stressful enough). I'm not interested in jumping ship- the grass isn't always greener- but I was wondering if any of you have experienced this on your units and been a part of turning it around. Any success stories with improving morale? I've already made a commitment not to partake in the grumbling and badmouthing.
