Abstract:
Purpose: Failure-to-Rescue has received significant attention in the literature specifically for associations with nurse staffing and more recently, practice environment. The purpose of this presentation is to review the development of this indicator as a proposed measure of quality care in hospitals and to discuss it's evolution to a nurse sensitive indicator. Discussion will include the use of this indicator in countries outside of the United States and adjustments to the indicator based on coding variations within other countries.

Method: A search of the literature was conducted to review the evidence available to assure the accuracy of this indicator as nurse sensitive. Literature related to the development of the indicator as well as modifications for uses related to nursing were explored and synthesized.

Findings: Although initial development of this indicator was based on the gold-standard of chart review, variations in the indicator have not received this same level of scrutiny. Using this revised version, associations have been shown between failure-to-rescue and nurse staffing as well as practice environment. However, recent evidence shows that the amended indicator may not be as accurate a reflection of failures of patient care as was initially thought and there is a strong recommendation for further study.

Discussion: Failure-to-rescue as originally designed has been shown to be an indicator of quality care for hospitals. Linking this marker to nursing care is an important extension of the early work. However, continued study must take place to assure that the associations accurately reflect failures in patient care.
