Burnout it defined as “physical, emotional or mental exhaustion, accompanied by
lowered performance and
negative attitudes towards oneself and others”
And it's a real problem with potentially deadly consequences.
Known risks associated with burnout include
Occupational errors by physicians who are burnt out
Depression and suicidal ideation
Motor vehicle crashes and near misses
Blunted growth in occupational knowledge
Staff turnover, reduced hours
If you're burnt out, it's not your fault. Dr. Sinsky, MD, vice president of professional satisfaction at the AMA says that “while burnout manifests in individuals, it originates in systems. Burnout is not the result of a deficiency in resilience among physicians, rather it is due to the systems in which physicians work”.
This goes for people who aren't physicians as well.
