Research Questions (Qualitative)/Hypothesis (Quantitative)

What is the association between nurse staffing levels, skill mix, and the quality and quantity of daytime interactions with patients in hospital wards?

How can understaffing amongst nurses in hospitals affect patient safety?

What is the longitudinal association between nurse staffing and patient outcomes?

What influence does transformational leadership have on employee’s contextual performance in the nursing sector in Kuala Lumpur?

Purposes/Aim of the Study

To examine the relationship between nurse staffing levels, skill mix and the quality and quantity of daytime interactions with patients in hospital wards

The aim is to increase the knowledge of understaffing of hospital nurses, and the consequences that understaffing may have on patient safety

To explore longitudinal association that exists between nurse staffing and patient outcome

To fill the gap that exists by determining the influence of intellectual stimulation, individualized consideration, inspirational motivation, and idealized influence have on contextual performance.

Design (Type of Quantitative, or Type of Qualitative)

This is a quantitative study that used an observational study.

This is a quantitative study that used thematic analysis.

This is a quantitative study that used a longitudinal study

This is a quantitative study.

Setting/Sample

Six wards at two English National Health Service hospitals

a literature search of the databases Chinal, Medline, Cochrane library, Isi Web of Science and Academic Search premiere was undertaken

Quarterly unit-level nursing data from 2004-2012 from the NDNQL

Healthcare setting in Kuala Lumpur

Methods: Intervention/Instruments

Secondary analysis of observational data

Literature review

Used 2004-2012 data obtained from NDNQL

Self-administered questionnaires

Analysis

Data were analyzed from 119-2 hour sessions in which care of 270 patients was observed

Thematic analysis was used.

A grouped mechanism was developed in the analysis

Descriptive and inferential statics was used for the analysis of data.

Key Findings

Low registered nurse staffing levels results in poorer quality interactions between patients and staff

Low nursing staffing results in a wider negative effect with adverse consequences for patient experience and quality of care.

The nursing shortage affects patient safety negatively directly and indirectly

Changes in nurse staffing are associated with changes in rates of falls and pressure ulcers

Seasonal nursing shortage contributes to seasonality in patient outcomes

Nurse leaders should adopt a transformational leadership style to influence and motivate nurses in managing stress, adapting changes and working towards organizational vision and goals

Leaders with individualized consideration can improve the performance of nurses

Recommendations

Policies and practices should focus on improving the retention and supply of registered nurses

Further research is required on the topic as articles in this study mentioned a lack of research, most especially in Nordic countries

More research is needed to study the underlying mechanisms of associations between nurse staffing and patient outcomes

Further research should include factors such as culture, age differences, ethnic differences, and religiosity. This will provide a better understanding of the factors that impact transformational leadership and performance.

This is a qualitative study.

Setting/Sample

Healthcare setting in Chile

Twelve staff nurses, supervisors, and head nurses from different wards of five teaching hospitals

26 baccalaureate‐pre‐pared nurse managers located across the United States

MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and other databases

Methods: Intervention/Instruments

Same protocols and measures used in RN4CAST

A qualitative design with a conventional content analysis approach

Semi-structured interviews

Used MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and other databases

Analysis

The cross-sectional dataset was used for looking at some staffing and work environment measures, patient outcomes and hospital outcomes

Data analysis was undertaken using MAXQDA Software with a conventional qualitative content analysis method.

The constant comparative method was used for the analysis of the data collection phase.

The studies selected were from the UK that estimates the associations between nurse staffing levels on general wards and any quality or outcome measures

Key Findings

The nursing work environment is the hospital property

Practice environment plays a vital role in attracting and retaining skilled and experienced human resource

Nurses share common work identities, appreciate each others’ personalities and foster workplace relationships

Lower nurse staffing levels are associated with worse outcomes in general acute wards or patient groups

Recommendations

Adjusting severity at the patient level can ensure that variation between hospitals can be explained by nursing factors.

There is a need to undertake this research in a different practice environment and context as the results may be different.

There is a need for further study which should seek to explore alternative work arrangement’s impact on nurse career.

There is a need to have the required levels of HCA staffing to better analyze the problem.
