Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Since July 2002, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) has required hospitals to aggregate and analyze data related to staffing effectiveness. Staffing Effectiveness is defined as the number, competency, and skill mix of staff in relation to the provision of needed care, treatment, and services. This standard is designed to help hospitals determine and continuously improve the effectiveness of their nurse staffing through an objective, evidence-based approach. The staffing standard requires hospitals to collect data on relevant human resource and clinical indicators for a minimum of two units, determine the desired performance for each indicator, trend the data over time, and analyze variations from desired performance. Our facility followed the process outlined by JCAHO. We: 1) Identified two units based on assessment of relevant information, 2) Obtained input from clinical staff who provide direct patient care on these two units, 3) Selected four indicators (two clinical and two human resource, including required indicators) for each unit based on assessment of relevant information, including staff input, 4) Included all nursing staff on these units in the data, · Defined the indicators, comparisons, and benchmarks, 5) Collected and analyzed the data, 6) Reviewed data with clinical staff responsible for direct patient care on these units along with nursing leaders, 7) Investigated variations, 8) Took appropriate action in response to the analyzed data, 9) Presented the findings to senior leadership, and 10) Continue to monitor and track data. Results elaborate the complex relationship between staffing variables and clinical patient outcomes. References: JCAHO's Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Hospitals (CAMH)
