Abstract

Background: Time optimization techniques are essential tools that have to make self-governance in order to complete any task on given time universally. The intensive care nurses (ICN) face many challenges at work due to fluid environment.
Purpose: Time optimization benefits good work execution by reducing burnout among ICN.
Methods: Multicenter quantitative experimental one group pre-test- Post-test design. Questionnaires were answered by ICNs(self-report) and also bythe shift incharge, and ICU incharge about the ICNs on work execution and Burnout, before and after nurse–guided time optimization video teaching.
Results: Participants were from two blocks (n =50). Nurse–guided time optimization showed fair work execution and burnout dropped from very high to average burnout. There was a weak positive correlation between work execution and burnout. Good compliance with time optimization sheet was found among ICNs.
Conclusions and Contributions to the Field: Time optimization and burnout were common problems in ICU. Nurse–guided time optimization intervention was an effective strategy in bridging the gap between the planning and execution of nursing care. However, burnout depends on various factors like long hours, stressful environment and family burden apart from time optimization. Continuous practice of these interventions with time optimization sheet will develop the nurse to become proficient in rendering quality care to critically ill patients.
