PURPOSE: Intermediate care units (IMCUs) represent an alternative care setting with nurse staffing levels between those of the general ward and the intensive care unit (ICU). Despite rising prevalence, little is known about IMCU practices across US hospitals. The purpose of this study is to characterize utilization patterns and assess for variation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 14-item survey was distributed to a random nationwide sample of pulmonary and critical care physicians between January and April 2017...

OBJECTIVES: Nurse staffing costs represent approximately 60% of total intensive care unit costs. In order to analyse resource allocation in intensive care, we examined the association between nurse staffing costs and two patient classification systems: the nursing activities score (NAS) and nine equivalents of nursing manpower use score (NEMS). RESEARCH METHODOLOGY/DESIGN: A retrospective descriptive correlational analysis of nurse staffing costs and data of 6390 patients extracted from a data warehouse...

BACKGROUND: The shortage of nursing staff is a national and international issue. Inadequate number of hospital nurse staff leads to poor health care services. Yet the effects of patient-centeredness between the relationships of nursing shortage on the quality of care (QC) and patient safety (PS) have not been explored. The aim of this study was to examine the mediating effects of patient-centeredness on the relationship of nursing shortage on the QC and PS in the Medical and Surgical Wards, in Malaysian private hospitals...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify associations among pediatric patient characteristics (age and gender), hospital characteristics, inpatient unit characteristics (unit type, pressure injury prevention practices, and nurse staffing measures), and hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) in a group of pediatric patients and in those determined to be at risk for pressure injury. DESIGN: A descriptive, correlational analysis of data from a large dataset...

Jaroslava Zimmermann, Holger Pfaff
In Germany, there is no empirical evidence regarding the relationship between nurse staffing levels and care outcomes in nursing homes. The current study explored differences in nurse staffing levels between facilities with and without resident weight loss. The analyses were conducted at the facility level (N = 166) and involved weight loss assessment of 8,665 residents. Separate models for residents with and without cognitive impairment were computed. The regression analyses showed that nursing facilities where no weight loss occurred among residents without cognitive impairment had a lower number of residents per RN and additional care staff...

AIMS: We examined the effects of perceived supervisor support, value congruence and hospital nurse staffing on nurses' job satisfaction through the satisfaction of the three psychological needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness. Then, we examined the links between job satisfaction and quality of care as well as turnover intentions from the workplace. BACKGROUND: There is growing interest in the relationships between work factors and nurses' job satisfaction...

Patient falls remain a leading adverse event in hospitals. In a study of 65 rural hospitals with 222 nursing units and 560 urban hospitals with 4274 nursing units, we found that geographic region, unit type, and nurse staffing, education, experience, and outcomes were associated with fall rates. Implications include specific attention to fall prevention in rehabilitation units, creating better work environments that promote nurse retention, and provide RN-BSN educational opportunities.

AIMS: To describe the characteristics of long-term care hospitals in 2010-2013 and to examine the longitudinal associations of nursing staff turnover with patient outcomes. BACKGROUND: The number of long-term care hospitals has exploded in Korea since the national long-term care insurance was launched in 2008.

PURPOSE: Unplanned extubation represents loss of control in the ICU, is associated with harm and is used as a measure of quality of care. We evaluated the rates and consequences of unplanned extubation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eligible patients were intubated, <18years, and in ICU. Patient, care-related and environmental characteristics were compared in patients who did and did not receive positive pressure ventilation in the 24h after events. Rates are expressed per 100 intubation-days...

In this paper, we examine the practicalities of nurse managers' work. We expose how managers' commitments to transformational leadership are undermined by the rationing practices and informatics of hospital reform underpinned by the ideas of new public management. Using institutional ethnography, we gathered data in a Canadian hospital. We began by interviewing and observing frontline leaders, nurse managers, and expanded our inquiry to include interviews with other nurses, staffing clerks, and administrators whose work intersected with that of nurse managers...

PURPOSE: This study examines the use of phone referral information to predict Emergency Severity Index triage levels as a proxy to anticipate emergency department nursing resource allocation in a pediatric hospital.

BACKGROUND: The intensive care nursing workforce plays an essential role in the achievement of positive healthcare outcomes. A growing body of evidence indicates that inadequate nurse staffing and poor skill mix are associated with negative outcomes for patients, and potentially compromises nurses' ability to maintain the safety of those in their care. In Australia, the Australian College of Critical Care Nurses (ACCCN) has previously published a position statement on intensive care staffing...

AIM: To assess the relationship between nurse staffing and healthcare associated infections in different settings. METHODS: From April to May 2015 a review of literature was conducted consulting PubMed, CINAHL and Cochrane Library. RESULTS: An increased amount of Registered Nurse Hours Per Patient Day (RNHPPD) and nurse-to-patient ratio was associated to a decreased occurrence of HAI...

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.
