The purpose of this article highlights a raise in disgruntle nurses that faces increase in the patient population being a lot sicker, working with fewer staff, less time at the bedside, which lead to diminish quality of care for patients.

What about:



This article highlights the growth in nurses' disquiet at the fall in the quality of patient care resulting from increasing numbers of patients presenting with more serious illnesses, the reduction of staff levels and the corresponding reduction in time spent at the bedside.

I've switched the clauses around so that anyone skimming can get the meaning instantly and then find out the reasons as they progress through the sentence.


I've also suggested 'disquiet' over 'disgruntlement' (to put the emphasis more on concern rather than annoyance).

I hope it helps!
