This systematic review in the Western Journal of Nursing Research examined the relationship between hospital nurse fatigue and outcomes. The authors found that fatigue was consistently associated with mental health problems, decreased nursing performance and sickness absence. Many studies confirmed that nurse fatigue is negatively associated with nurse, patient-safety and organisational outcomes. The review also highlighted gaps in current knowledge and the need for future research using a longitudinal design and measuring additional outcomes to better understand the consequences of nurse fatigue.
