This Swiss study sought to determine the relationship between elements of clinician burnout and mortality, length of stay, and ratings of patient safety. The authors found that clinicians demonstrating symptoms of burnout had lower perceptions of patient safety in the intensive care unit. However, higher levels of burnout among clinicians were not linked to clinical outcomes.
