Excellence And Evidence In Healthcare StaffingSource: API Healthcare
By Kathy Douglas, RN, MHA, Institute for Staffing Excellence and Innovation
Staffing in hospitals and healthcare systems is complex, increasingly regulated, and closely associated with patient safety. Moreover, a growing body of evidence suggests that quality; cost of care; safety; length of stay; readmissions; patient, physician, and staff satisfaction; turnover; and vacancy rates – all of which have an impact on operational and financial performance – are all linked to staffing. Consequently, healthcare administrators are under pressure from insurers, patient advocates, unions, and state and national governments to define, secure, and assure effective, safe, and cost-effective staffing. This white paper provides some proven best practices in healthcare staffing as well as some real-world success stories of effective staffing in action.
