Christine T. Impact of Nurse Staffing on Patient Care. Tubbs-Cooley and colleagues observed that higher patient loads were associated with higher hospital readmission rates. The study found that when more than four patients were assigned to an RN in pediatric hospitals, the likelihood of hospital readmissions increased significantly. Jeannie Cimiotti and colleagues identified a significant association between high patient-to-nurse ratios and nurse burnout with increased urinary tract and surgical site infections.
The authors conclude that reducing burnout can improve the well-being of nurses and the quality of patient care. In a study publishing in the April issue of Medical Care , Dr. Mary Blegen and her colleagues from the University of California, San Francisco found that higher nurse staffing levels were associated with fewer deaths, lower failure-to-rescue incidents, lower rates of infection, and shorter hospital stays. In March , Dr. Jack Needleman published findings in the New England Journal of Medicine , which indicate that insufficient nurse staffing was related to higher patient mortality rates.
These researchers analyzed the records of nearly , admitted patients and , eight-hour nursing shifts across 43 patient-care units at academic health centers. Linda Aiken and colleagues found that lower patient-nurse ratios on medical and surgical units were associated with significantly lower patient mortality rates.

Through this meta-analysis, the authors found that the shortage of registered nurses, in combination with an increased workload, poses a potential threat to quality.
Koen Van den Heede found a significant association between the number of baccalaureate-prepared RNs on cardiac care units and in-hospital mortality. Data analyzed by this international team of researcher that included representatives from Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, and the United States showed that there were 4.
A growing body of research clearly links baccalaureate-prepared nurses to lower mortality and failure-to-rescue rates.
Studies published in the journals Health Services Research in August and the Journal of Nursing Administration in May confirm the findings of several previous studies which link education level and patient outcomes. Efforts to address the nursing shortage must focus on preparing more baccalaureate-prepared nurses in order to ensure access to high quality, safe patient care. Through this meta-analysis, the authors found that the shortage of registered nurses, in combination with an increased workload, poses a potential threat to quality. Increases in registered nurse staffing was associated with reductions in hospital-related mortality and failure to rescue as well as reduced length of stays.
In settings with inadequate staffing, patient safety was compromised.
