For this assignment, please review this week’s content regarding organizational culture, compassion fatigue, and work burnout. Please answer the following questions:

Dimitrios and Konstantinos (2014) define organizational culture as “a set of beliefs, values, customs, traditions and practices which are experiences of and beliefs of all members of an organization.” According to Dimitrios and Konstantinos (2014), culture of an organization affects the way members of the organization are linked to each other and also their relationship with other people who are not part of the organization. Furthermore, organizations with “bad” culture lead to low efficiency of the employee and also psychological, physical and spiritual effects. This topic reminds me of our current pandemic. Nurses and other healthcare professionals are fearful of their own health and their families’ health, with fatigue from the stress of caring for patients with Covid-19.
