OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine maternity nurses' perceptions of implementing the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. METHODS: An online survey and a focus group were used to evaluate perceptions of maternity nurses of implementing the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding in an urban Texas hospital at the onset of the project initiation. Responses were transcribed and coded using Nvivo software. Thematic analysis was conducted and consensus was reached among the research team to validate themes...

METHODS: A retrospective study of public hospital EDs in Queensland, Australia, was undertaken for 2013-2014. The ED and hospital characteristics are described to evaluate the alignment between activity and resourcing levels and their impact on performance...

OBJECTIVES: To correlate the average number of nursing care hours dedicated to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients with nursing care indicators. METHOD: Transverse, descriptive study conducted between 2011 and 2013. Data were obtained from the electronic records system and from the nursing staff daily schedule. Generalized Linear Models were used for analysis. RESULTS: A total of 1,717 patients were included in the study. The average NAS (Nursing Activities Score) value was 54...

BACKGROUND: Patient safety is a significant challenge facing healthcare systems. The administration of medication is pivotal to patient safety, and errors in drug administration are associated with mortality and morbidity. In this study, we assessed the factors contributing to the occurrence and reporting of medication errors from the nurse's perspective. METHODS: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, we distributed a validated questionnaire to 367 nurses at a large public hospital and obtained a response rate of 73...

BACKGROUND: In 2010, the Veterans Health Administration issued a Staffing Methodology (SM) Directive to provide a standardized, data-driven method for determining appropriate inpatient nurse staffing. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to describe experiences and factors related to SM implementation. METHODS: We administered a Web-based survey to chief nurse executives to obtain their implementation experiences. Structural, process, and outcome factors and barriers associated with self-reported implementation success were identified...

The nursing shortage is a serious global issue. Low birth rates and a rapidly aging population are accelerating the demands of nursing professionals. However, the challenging aspects of nurses' work environment-e.g., a poor salary, long shift length, heavy workload, temporary staffing, or bullying-are still ongoing, leading to compromised patient care, more care left undone, adverse events, poor care quality, inequity in access to healthcare, longer waiting times, burnout and illness among nurses, and even unexpected yet preventable patient deaths (Ball et al...

Dramatic improvements in reported nursing home quality, including staffing ratios, have come under increased scrutiny in recent years because they are based on data self-reported by nursing homes. In contrast to other domains, the key mechanism for real improvement in the staffing ratios domain is clearer: to improve scores, nursing homes should increase staffing expenditures. We analyze the relationship between changes in expenditures and reported staffing quality pre- versus post the 5-star rating system...

OBJECTIVE: Patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) have worse outcomes than those discharged to home, but whether this is due to differences in facility-level factors in addition to patient characteristics is not known. We aimed to determine whether SNF-level factors including nurse staffing and patient density are associated with outcomes after acute hospitalization for trauma or surgery. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, AND MEASUREMENTS: Retrospective study of patients discharged to Medicare-certified SNFs after trauma or major surgery from 2007 to 2009...

Nurses, whether registered nurses (RNs) or nurse practitioners (NPs), are becoming key providers of primary care services. While evidence for the influence of NPs on patient experience in primary care is mounting, this is less so for RNs. We use the Canadian component of the international Quality and Costs of Primary Care 2013/14 survey to investigate the mechanisms by which nurses can affect patients' experience in primary care, focusing on accessibility and appropriateness of care. The data allow us to distinguish between family practice RNs, specialised RNs and NPs, and covers all types of patients visiting a primary care clinic in a variety of contexts in all Canadian provinces...

Continuous treatments (e.g., doses) arise often in practice, but many available causal effect estimators are limited by either requiring parametric models for the effect curve, or by not allowing doubly robust covariate adjustment. We develop a novel kernel smoothing approach that requires only mild smoothness assumptions on the effect curve, and still allows for misspecification of either the treatment density or outcome regression. We derive asymptotic properties and give a procedure for data-driven bandwidth selection...

Some authors argue that it is not longer ethically correct to expose hospitalized patients to death risks associated with understaffing (Nickitas, 2014). Also the Care Quality Commission (CQC, an independent regulator of all health and social care services in England) has included staffing levels as one of the auditing quality standards when inspecting hospitals and health centres. The Royal College of Nursing, in its document Mandatory Nurse Staffing Levels (RCN, 2012), clearly defined which nurse staffing levels should be adopted by policy makers to ensure the provision of safe care...

Ensuring that the level of nurse staffing used to care for patients is appropriate to the setting and service intensity is essential for high-quality and cost-effective care. This article describes the development, validation, and implementation of the clinic technical skills permission list developed specifically to guide nurse staffing decisions in physician clinics of an academic medical center. Results and lessons learned in using this staffing guideline are presented.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of nursing overtime, nursing provision and unit occupancy rate with medical incident rates in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and the risk of mortality or major morbidity among very preterm infants. STUDY DESIGN: Single center retrospective cohort study of infants born within 23 to 29 weeks of gestational age or birth weight <1000 g admitted at a 56 bed, level III NICU. Nursing overtime ratios (nursing overtime hours/total nursing hours), nursing provision ratios (nursing hours/recommended nursing hours based on patient dependency categories) and unit occupancy rates were pooled for all shifts during NICU hospitalization of each infant...

1 Missed patient care due to nursing staff shortages increases hospital death rates, a major international study reveals. Lead researcher Jane Ball said the findings provide the 'missing link' in understanding mortality rates - when nurse staffing is low, necessary care is leſt undone.
