Safe Patient Limits Save Lives
The Medical Research Says
An analysis of all the scientific evidence linking RN staffing to patient care outcomes found “every additional patient assigned to an RN is associated with a 7% increase in the risk of hospital-acquired pneumonia, a 53% increase in respiratory failure, and a 17% increase in medical complications.
-Robert L. Kane, MD., et al, Evidence Report/Technology Assessment for Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, AHRQ Publication No. 07-E005, May 2007
Mass Nurses Say:
87% of RNs report they don't have the time to properly comfort and care for patients and families due to unsafe patient assignments.
