Abstract:
Evidence continues to accumulate linking staffing to quality, safety, length of stay, and the satisfaction of both patients and caregivers resulting in a growing understanding of how pervasively staffing strategies and practices can impact a hospitals financial and operational performance. Todays extremely difficult economic environment calls for breakthrough thinking and innovation. During this panel presentation, three Magnet facilities will describe different ways they have been able to bring about positive change through innovations in staffing excellence. A large health center will discuss the shift in their culture from a reactive, fear and entitlement-based environment to one of collaboration and participation. Providing transparency and flexibility has been at the heart of their successful transformation. A mid-western hospital will discuss how they initiated a multidisciplinary team with representatives from the Departments of Nursing, HR, Staffing, Benefits and Compensation, and Finance to study staffing challenges within the organization. As a result, they re-designed float pool and incentive pay practices that optimized the utilization of their resources and maximized the filling of hard to fill shifts. Another hospital panelist will highlight their implementation of staffing technology, a float pool program, and an Intern program that resulted in decreased vacancy rates, decreased use of contract labor, increased per diem productivity, and increased satisfaction among staff and managers. The panel discussion and examples of innovation and risk taking will hopefully inspire other nurse leaders to examine their staffing practices and uncover opportunity for creative solutions to the long standing challenges of effective staffing.
