Excerpts from Wellness and Safety of the EMR for the Emergency Medical Responder

Burnouts are another downside of any job. It is a reaction to cumulative stress or to multiple critical incidents, where there is a loss of enthusiasm and energy, and it is replaced by feelings of frustration, hopelessness, low self-esteem, isolation, and mistrust.

Some of the factors that contribute to burnout are:

  • Multiple or back-to-back emergency events.
  • Facing public hostility.
  • Bureaucratic obstacles.
  • Long hours, and.
  • Poor working conditions.
