45% of healthcare professionals feel burned out

Most healthcare leaders feel some symptoms of burnout, according to a June 26 MGMA Stat poll.

The poll asked healthcare leaders whether they feel burned out at their job. The plurality of respondents (45 percent) said "yes," while 28 percent of respondents said "somewhat." Only 27 percent of respondents said "no."

The three components of burnout, according to Christina Maslach, PhD, professor of psychology emerita at UC Berkeley, and Susan Jackson, PhD, distinguished professor of human resource management at New Brunswick, N.J.-based Rutgers University, are:

  1. Emotional exhaustion: Feeling exhausted and emotionally extended at work
  2. Depersonalization: Feeling withdrawn when delivering care, doing work or teaching others
  3. Personal accomplishment: Feeling as if your work skills, accomplishments and abilities aren't good enough
