Smart Nursing: Nurse Retention & Patient Safety Improvement... : Clinical Nurse Specialist

.

Last year, a new study by the University of Pennsylvania found that poor management of staff, whether a shortage of critical nurses or the inability to foster a collaborative work environment, is leading to significant work-overload and burnout.

The researchers found that if hospitals reduced nursing burnout from 30 percent to 10 percent, 4,160 cases of hospital-acquired infections could be prevented annually, saving $41 million. Earlier, the same set of researchers found that if Pennsylvania enacted and enforced a minimum nurse-to-patient ratio as California has done, as many as 264 surgical deaths could have been prevented in 2010.

There is lots of discussion about mandating nurse-patient ratios in the UK. It seems that this is an issue in the US as well. Will they adopt legislation on this? This short article mentions some of the research which suggests it is a good idea.
