A public concern pertaining to patient safety is that currently hospitals may be providing inadequate nurse staffing, consequently jeopardizing the quality of patient care. The specific aims of this study are: (1) to examine hospital characteristics that affect nurse staffing; (2) to examine the effects of nurse staffing on the occurrence of adverse events; and (3) to assess the consequences of adverse events on morbidity, mortality and medical costs. This study will include medical and surgical patients who were discharged from 324 California acute care hospitals in 1997. Nurse staffing will be measured by six indicators; nursing hours per patient day worked by registered nurses, all nursing personnel and agency personnel, skill mix, overtime index, and labor productivity. Adverse events include adverse drug events, patient falls, pressure ulcers, and nosocomial infections. Morbidity attributed to adverse events will be measured by prolonged length of stay. Analyses will employ multiple regression, logistic regression, and mixed models, depending on the dependent variables. Patient characteristics will be controlled for to isolate the effects of nurse staffing on the patient outcomes. This study will provide guidelines for determining appropriate nurse staffing levels in hospitals with different characteristics, including patient population and types of care provided.
