Full Abstract: Compassion fatigue in the nursing profession can be detrimental to individual nurses as well as health care organizations.

Compassion fatigue in the nursing profession can be detrimental to individual nurses as well as health care organizations. Nurses that are victims of compassion fatigue may experience a plethora of medical and mental health conditions and nurses working with traumatized and suffering patients may start to relive the patients’ stress and anxiety. Health care organizations are affected by compassion fatigue as employees call in sick and experience conflict and lack of teamwork and nursing staff resist necessary changes.
