Understanding that nurses, medical providers, etc all come to work with having their own experiences coupled with stressful events, and everyone can react to these events differently. Providing time to debrief and self care is very important to caring for the caregiver.

The importance of giving the nurse a break and time to vent after not only A CI but after a stressful patient situation is overlooked and is a huge component in Nurse burnout.
