Reason for Selection
Nurses play critical role in patients’ safety and quality of care provision. Nurses’ vigilance at bedside is important to ensure patient’s safety, to manage patient care needs, coordinate care, prevent deterioration, identify and communicate changes in patient’s condition, perform countless tasks, and have time to educate patients and families. Inadequate staffing has a detrimental impact on nurses in terms of emotional exhaustion and job dissatisfaction, both of which are linked to costly turnover rate. The evidence suggests that high nurse-to-patient ratios are also linked to poor patient outcome, increased infections, pressure ulcers,falls, and accidental death (Barrows, 2020). Studies have shown that mandatory nurse-to-patient ratios that became a milestone in California’s healthcare system, improves patient care quality, mortality and morbidity outcome, safety of the patients while reduces nurses’ burnout and increases nurses’ retention rates.
