ED is the most stressful area in a hospital where the doctors, nursing staff, ward boys and co-ordinators all work under pressing conditions but maintaining a standard of care up to a suitable level. This is not without the impacts on their own physical as well as mental health. They deal with the sickest patients and the worst hostile behaviours at time. People working in such environments often develop work-related anxiety and depression. Most of times they feel they are having symptoms of raised potassium in blood because they handled a similar patient. Loss of controlled behaviour is one of the consequences of being continuously overworked, pressured
and bearing ill behaviours.
