    This research was sponsored by the American Nurses Association. Optimal Nurse Staffing to Improve Quality of Care and Patient Outcomes 4 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY While this analysis focused on nurse staffing in acute care hospitals, the principles can . Many hospitals now aim to hire more bachelor’s degree-trained nurses, and nearly 25 U.S. states have proposed or enacted legislation to improve hospital nurse staffing. A research team led by Dr. Linda Aiken of the University of Pennsylvania and Dr. Walter Sermeus of the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium analyzed patient outcomes.

    In , the travel nurse segment held a majority of the market in terms of revenue share. In response to the rising pressure of healthcare costs, hospitals are forced to reduce their staff and hence, opt for staffing services to ensure that nurses are available when workload increases. There are a few proposed methods to decrease nurse staffing ratios. Since California’s implementation in 2 several other states have introduced similar legislation, including mandated reporting of nurse staffing to the public and mandating the processes that hospitals use to determine staffing.

    8. Emergency nurses support further research regarding ED staffing models and their impact on patients, nurses, and healthcare systems. Background Healthcare costs continue to soar. Care in the hospital accounts for 30% of the costs and more than 50% of that will be for labor expenditures Best practice when developing nurse staffing. Research published in the BMJ noted that patients’ thoughts on their care in a hospital were associated with nurse staffing and quality of care (Aiken et al., ). Hospitals It may not seem like it, but employing more nurses can actually be cost effective for healthcare facilities.

Ward-based staffing data and interaction data in real time overcomes the weaknesses of much previous survey-based research in the nursing workforce field which has been based on hospital-level averages.6 7 40 Our study provided an opportunity to study the actual staffing levels encountered by patients on wards.

Data on staffing and care were Cited by: 6. A program of international research by the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research at the University of Pennsylvania, USA, was undertaken to determine whether variation in hospital registered nurse (RN) staffing across hospitals contributed to poor patient outcomes.

This program of research has been implemented in 30 countries to date Cited by:   Multiple reviews of research have established that higher registered nurse staffing levels in hospitals are associated with better patient outcomes and improved care quality, including lower risks of in-hospital mortality, shorter lengths of stay and fewer omissions of necessary care (e.g.

Brennan et al., ; Griffiths et al.,b Cited by: 2. • While improved work environments, better hospital nurse staffing, and more educated nurses have been associated with lower hospital mortality, little exists about what each element plays on improving nurse staffing for health services research exist.

Staffing Strategies In general, nursing staffing strategies consist of generic approaches such as core staffing and using temporary and part-time staff to support variable demand based on occupancy rates and patient acuity.

Jun; 53(3): – Objective The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate and summarise available research on nurse staffing methods and relate these to outcomes under three overarching themes of: (1) management of clinical risk, quality and safety; (2) development of a new or innovative staffing methodology; and (3) equity of nursing workload.

ity that hospitals can find qualified nurses with the desired specialization and experience (Goodman-Bacon and Ono ). Working with a staffing agency that has access to a nationwide network of qualified nurses may help hospitals staff vacant positions without the added time and expense of recruitment (Houseman, Kalleberg, and Erickcek ).

Objective: To estimate the effect of minimum nurse staffing ratios on California acute care hospitals' financial performance. Data sources/study setting: Secondary data from Medicare cost reports, the American Hospital Association's (AHA) Annual Survey, and the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) are combined from to for hospitals in California.

Staffing levels in a value-based health care system should not be fixed because day-to-day hospital requirements are constantly in flux, according to findings in a white paper from health care insight leader Avalere and a panel of top nurse researchers, thought leaders and managers.

Introduction. Numerous studies and systematic reviews have described wide variation across hospitals in registered nurse (RN) staffing and have concluded that better hospital nurse staffing is associated with more favourable patient outcomes, including lower mortality,1–8 fewer complications,9 higher patient satisfaction,10 11 shorter stays and fewer readmissions,12 13 as well.

Safe Staffing Nurse Law. California initiated the nation's first nurse-to-patient ratios for intensive care units inwhich provided the nursing profession and hospitals with a general model for expanded staffing. California's new Safe Staffing Law, referred to as Assembly Billwas signed by Gov.

Every additional patient-per-nurse in a Pennsylvania hospital increases that patient’s risk of death by 7%.i Surgical patients in hospitals with ratio have a 31% higher risk of death. Before and after the mandate's implementation, researchers found modest increases in ICU nurse staffing ratios—a change from patients per nurse to patients per nurse.
