Perspect Psychiatr Care 2021 Mar 2. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Operating Department of Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, Hunan, China.

Purpose: The study was conducted to explore the relationship between mobile phone addiction, work procrastination, and burnout among newly graduated nurses.

Design And Methods: A cross-sectional survey involving 220 newly graduated nurses in China was conducted from June to July 2020.

Findings: Approximately 60.9% of newly graduated nurses experienced occupational burnout; 72.7% of newly graduated nurses were characterized by moderate or greater procrastination and mobile phone addiction was at a moderate level. Mobile phone addiction and work procrastination were significant factors leading to emotional exhaustion and cynicism. Work procrastination was also an independent predictor of reduced professional efficacy.

Practice Implications: Reducing the level of mobile phone addiction and work procrastination among newly graduated nurses might be effective for burnout prevention.

Mobile phone addiction and its association with burnout in Chinese novice nurses: A cross-sectional survey.

Nurs Open 2021 03 3;8(2):688-694. Epub 2020 Nov 3.

Xiangya Nursing School, Central South University, Changsha, China.

Aim: To explore the levels of mobile phone addiction and burnout and their relationships among novice nurses.

Design: A cross-sectional investigation design.

Methods: Questionnaires were distributed to 400 novice nurses in five public hospitals in China. A total of 366 participants completed the survey. Data collected in 2020 were analysed by using descriptive statistics, an independent t test and Pearson's correlation analysis.

Results: The results showed that the frequency of nursing adverse events was associated with higher level of mobile phone addiction in novice nurses, and 52.46% of the participants (N = 366) presented a high level of occupational burnout. Moreover, the results indicated that there was a positive correlation between the novice nurses' mobile phone addiction level and burnout (r = .33, p < .01).

Conclusion: The level of mobile phone addiction may affect nursing adverse events and nurses' burnout. Education on novice nurses' mobile phone use seems necessary to ensure patient safety and burnout prevention.

Impact: Findings of this study expanded important knowledge about mobile phone addiction and its potential influence on nursing safety and nurse burnout and may place significant implications to staff nurse management and in-service education.

Myrothins A-F from Endophytic Fungus Myrothecium sp. BS-31 Harbored in Panax notoginseng.

Chem Biodivers 2021 Mar 4;18(3):e2000964. Epub 2021 Feb 4.

Endophytic fungi play important roles for host's stress tolerance including invasion by pathogenic microbes. Small molecules are common weapons in the microbe-microbe interactions. Panax notoginseng is a widely used traditional Chinese medicinal plant and harbors many endophytes, some exert functions against pathogens. Here, we report six new compounds named myrothins A-F (1-6) produced by Myrothecium sp. BS-31, an endophyte isolated from P. notoginseng, and their antifungal activities against pathogenic fungi causing host root-rot disease. Their structures were elucidated with analysis of spectroscopic data including 1D and 2D NMR, HR-ESI-MS. Myrothins B (2) and E (5) showed the weak activity against Fusarium oxysporum and Phoma herbarum, and myrothins F (6) showed weak activity against F. oxysporum.
