Excess workload and burnout among nurses can compromise safe patient care and lead to adverse outcomes. This survey of acute care nurses in Alabama identified high levels of nurse burnout; burnout was a significant predictor of medication administration errors. All types of burnout – personal, work-related, and client-related – were significant predictors of self-reported medication administration errors.
