Workplace Culture

In the healthcare setting, work culture determines how medical, nursing, and other professionals work together in the pursuit of achieving organizational goals -- whether they work in clinics, hospitals, health centers, and other health institutions. A literary review was conducted to determine if workplace culture effects patient satisfaction and staff engagement. The results established that workplace culture is an important topic for staff members and patients. Healthcare workers want to work in a place they are appreciated and treated well. Patients want to receive treatment where the healthcare teams work well together. Negative workplace culture can be caused by burnout, workplace bullying and so much more. There are many ways to prevent the causes of negative workplace culture. Creating a positive workplace culture has positive effects on nurses and patients including better patient outcomes. A positive workplace culture is essential to healthcare. Future research should be conducted to conclude better ways to improve workplace culture.
