Research demonstrates that low nurse staffing levels are associated with higher rates of inpatient mortality, other adverse events and longer length of stay. In this presentation, Dr. Jack Needleman discusses a study which examines the association of inpatient mortality with gaps in staffing between the hospital's own targets and actual staffing. He also discusses the pressures on hospitals to redesign the work of nurses to address quality and efficiency challenges.
