- “Not having enough time to get all the work done and working later interfering with my family time”
- “MD staff is not helpful with pre-ops or getting PT ready like IVs. Marketing sure labs are ordered and up-to-date. I have to spend personal time doing pre-ops daily.
- “No ancillary resources”
- “The stress of possible malpractice lawsuits.”
- “Amount of sleep occasional marginal”
- “The inability to provide standard of care practices because of administrative BS that they seem to make up on a daily basis and attribute their wii to that of Policy.”
- “Not enough time in the day to attend to everything, even though extra time built into the schedule to help alleviate this issue.”
- “Legal issues in medicine and malpractice, which may be completely unrelated to performance”
- “Lack of appropriate PPE”

- “Hostile patients”
- “Disrespect and violence from patients whose stressors far exceed their capacity to cope”

- “Healthcare administrators who prioritize profits over patients’ welfare”
- “Patients who don’t do well and have demanding families”
- “Worrying about the future, where and when will I be going next. This would not be so bad if I was not at odds with my family about where I would like to work.”
- “Disrespect from hospital staff”
- “Having people be disrespectful to you”
