Abstract/Description

The purpose of this project is to give information regarding staffing and adverse patient outcomes. Safe staffing is essential to patient care. Nurses who have heavy workload are unable to give their patients the best nursing care possible. A unit that is understaffed will cause an increase in nurse to patient ratios and therefore increase the risk of an adverse patient event. With the education provided from this presentation, the staff at this facility will be equipped with the most recent research explaining the need for adequate staffing, the consequences of understaffed units, and the advantages to implementing safer guidelines.
