The physical and psychological well-being of healthcare providers can also improve patient safety. A survey of 364 nurses found that somatic symptoms (e.g., headache, exhaustion, fatigue) had a positive correlation with nursing errors, but other symptoms of burnout – such as anxiety or depression – did not. Resilience was associated with all aspects of general health and can be a helpful coping mechanism to prevent harm.
