This study explored the relationships between nurse fatigue, burnout, psychological well-being, team vitality, and patient safety, and the role of presenteeism as a potential mediator. Authors found strong relationships between workplace influences and job-stress presenteeism, and between job-stress presenteeism and patient safety outcomes, including lower rates of event reporting and perceptions of patient safety.
