Absenteeism among staff registered nurses in acute care hospitals

Title:Head
Absenteeism of staff nurses is a pervasive phenomenon that

adversely affects hospital budgets, quality of patient care, work

productivity, and morale. This study was designed to validate the

Organizational Dynamics Paradigm of Nurse Absenteeism which is

based on the work of Price and Mueller (1986) and Brook and Price

(1989). Within the paradigm, employee characteristics, manager

characteristics, organizational characteristics, and work

requirements were hypothesized to impact absenteeism directly or

indirectly, with job satisfaction, commitment, job involvement, and

intent to stay as intervening variables. The criterion variable

was a single-day absence index. The sample was staff registered

nurses from four urban, acute-care hospitals (N=1077). Multiple

regression methods were used to evaluate the causal model. Data

analysis revelaed that the effects of the predictor variables on

absenteeism were not consistent across sample subgroups. Different

models emerged for part- and full-time staff nurses and for

hospital of employment. Contrasts between the full-time model and

other sample subgroups wil be presented.
