OBJECTIVE: Ultrahigh therapy use has increased in SNFs without concomitant increases in residents' characteristics. It has been suggested that this trend may also have influenced the provision of high-intensity rehabilitation therapies to residents who are at the end of life (EOL). Motivated by lack of evidence, we examined therapy use and intensity among long-stay EOL residents. DESIGN: An observational study covering a time period 2012-2016. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: New York State nursing homes (N = 647) and their long-stay decedent residents (N = 55,691)...

OBJECTIVE: To enhance nursing staff retention and ensure a consistently high standard of care, a study was conducted to determine an appropriate nurse staffing model for a neurocritical care unit. In addition to being critically ill, these patients often require extensive diagnostic testing to determine treatment. Nurses traveling with patients leave higher nurse-patient ratios remaining on the unit. METHODS: Prospective observation was used to assess relationships between neurologic assessment, documentation, and the amount of time spent traveling with patients...

BACKGROUND: Compared to other countries, Germany has the highest number of intensive care unit (ICU) beds, but, despite this, a shortage in ICU care is evident. Currently, little comprehensive data on ICU staffing and on subsequent closure of ICU beds are available. The current survey therefore aimed to systematically investigate the closure of ICU beds. METHOD: A survey was performed among authorized professional trainers in ICU medicine. RESULTS: Overall, a shortage of ICU beds following bed closure was evident in 76% of all ICU floors with 22% reporting daily ICU bed closure...

BACKGROUND: Promotion of patient safety is among the most important goals and challenges of healthcare systems worldwide in countries including China. Donabedian's Structure-Process-Outcome model implies that patient safety is affected by hospital nursing organizational factors and nursing care process. However, studies are imperative for a clear understanding about the mechanisms by which patient safety is affected to guide practice. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to explore the impact of hospital nursing work environment, workload, nursing care left undone, and nurse burnout on patient safety...

Occupational hazards (OHs) and occupational injuries (OIs) may contribute to nurses needing sick time and to a high financial burden for hospitals. There is little published literature about nurse-reported OHs/OIs and their relationships with work environments and working overtime in China. This study was designed to describe Chinese hospital registered nurses' OHs/OIs and to explore the associations between work environments, working overtime, and nurse-reported OHs/OIs. This cross-sectional study was conducted in Guangdong province in China in 2014...

Pain is a common subjective symptom among older adults in general and among older adult residents in long-term geriatric facilities in particular. Pain diminishes older adults' quality of life and may impair their ability to recover from various illnesses. Therefore, the Israeli Ministry of Health has issued guidelines on effectively assessing and treating pain in this population. To examine discrepancies between the Ministry of Health's pain assessment guidelines and documented practice by nursing staff at a long-term geriatric care facility and whether these discrepancies correlate to characteristics of the nurses, the wards, and the patients' characteristics...

OBJECTIVE: Patient to staff ratios vary based on facility characteristics, and therefore have been proposed as an explanatory factor for the variation in dialysis facility outcomes. This analysis tested that hypothesis. DESIGN AND METHODS: Observational study using Dialysis Facility Report data. Reported staff numbers from the Annual Facility Survey were converted to full time equivalents (FTE). Subsequently, ratios were created for patients per FTE registered dietitian (RD), social worker, nurse, and patient care technician...

BACKGROUND: Nursing workload is highly associated with patient safety. It has been argued that the imbalance between nursing payment and nursing workload in Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI)-covered intensive care units (ICUs) has resulted in the inadequate allocation of nursing manpower. However, limited empirical data are currently available to support this argument. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between nursing workload, quality of care, and NHI-covered nursing payments in ICU settings...

The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) has conducted several member surveys that included questions about staffing but has not established nurse-patient ratios, given the number and complexity of variables that must be considered. The 2016 ONS member survey showed that staffing was the most frequently cited challenge in the practice setting. With the implementation of ONS Communities in 2017, members have the opportunity to network and connect about issues. Staffing in chemotherapy infusion centers has been a frequent topic...

Chul-Gyu Kim, Kyun-Seop Bae
BACKGROUND: Nurse staffing level is an important factor on nursing sensitive outcome. The relationships of nurse staffing level with nursing sensitive outcomes such as mortality, upper gastrointestinal bleeding and pressure ulcer have been explored in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Lower level of hospital nurse staffing seems associated with more adverse outcomes, especially mortality. However, there is insufficient evidence of the nurse staffing level-outcome relationship in other indicators...
