This is exactly what we are working to fix. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I have been a Registered Nurse for almost twenty years and I strongly feel that staffing is a number issue and I am in complete support of S Or maybe she does.
I cannot fully understand from the article.
This bill S creates the same staffing ratios that exist in California, which is a much safer place to be a patient than NJ. I see unsafe staffing every day. And I have seen negative patient outcomes because of this. I also have seen severe job dissatisfaction, burnout and turnover of nursing staff — ALL of which is mentioned in this bill.
I agree that staffing should take into account patient acuity and the nurses level of experience. But this is mentioned and included in Nurse staffing job satisfaction and retention bill pg 4. Nurses continue to eat their young and not stand together, unlike our physician counterparts.
We must stand together and we must support this bill S We believe it should be a mix of nurse experience and acuity with nurses helping to make the staffing decisions.
Yes, California has a ratio law that applies to all types of acute care units and nurses still strike over unsafe staffing. It discusses California on page I have worked in critical care for 30 years, the last 10 as an APN.
Part of the problem is nurses have a hard time changing the status quo as far as their units are concerned. It works very well when actualized but I can honestly say that nursing administration, unit managers, physicians, and the nurses themselves were all barriers to full implementation.
I know that it works because I had an informal method of putting it into action as a care manager. I was a staff nurse, care manager and the most experienced and skilled nurse in the group. I would always take the patient that required the most vigilance and position the newest member of the team near me so I was available as a resource for that nurse.
I rounded at least twice during the shift to make sure that everyone was safe and that families were confident in our care abilities. I have the power to control some of the workflows because I round on the patients, meet the bedside nurse to plan care with respect to his observations and then I write the appropriate orders such as removing catheters, lines, extubating appropriately, meeting with family to address their needs, decreasing unnecessary and wasteful nursing tasks as appropriate.
This might include transitioning a patient from a labor-intensive insulin drip to a sliding scale, decreasing hourly vitals signs as appropriate, transferring patients to SDU or telemetry or consulting with palliative care APNs for support in scenarios where I need time to discuss the de-escalation of care when patient status changes.
Until nurses can articulate this model, educators teach the model and DNPs influence the care transitions as direct care clinicians, institutions will fumble the concept. Of course, APNs with acute and critical care capabilities would head the team for those patients and midwives, pediatric APNs etc would head up their respective teams.
Hospitals will become critical access only as we move towards OP care. I would take that same team concept and follow the patients from facility discharge to home, LTC, hospice, well-care. Finally, I would, of course, try this on a unit with like-minded individuals and as a way to provide a residency for new APNs and staff nurses.The problem that has been addressed in the study is if the nurse-patient ratios affect job satisfaction and retention.
The research questions for. May 10, · Researchers have extensively examined how staffing levels relate to nurses’ job satisfaction and therefore retention issues. According to Knudson (), “each additional patient per nurse is associated with a 23 percent increase in burnout and a 15 percent increase in job dissatisfaction” (p C1).
