Second Victim Syndrome (SVS), a phenomenon observed in healthcare, refers to the emotional, psychological, and physical distress experienced by healthcare providers involved in adverse patient events. This paper explores the multifaceted impact of SVS on healthcare professionals, the underlying contributing factors, and proposes comprehensive strategies to foster well-being and resilience within the medical community. By recognizing and addressing SVS, healthcare organizations can create a supportive environment that enhances the overall quality of patient care and ensures the long-term vitality of their workforce.
