The American Nurses Association (ANA) collaborated with Avalere to explore the clinical case for using optimal nurse staffing models to achieve improvements in patient outcomes. Avalere conducted a targeted review of recent published literature, government reports, and other publicly available evaluations of nurse staffing and patient outcomes. Avalere also convened a panel of leading nurse researchers, thought leaders, managers, and those in practice from across the country to provide additional context and to help identify best practices in nurse staffing. While this analysis focused on nurse staffing in acute care hospitals, the principles can be applied to other settings such as post-acute care. The analysis concluded appropriate nurse staffing is associated with improved patient outcomes. You can access the white paper here: Optimal Nurse Staffing to Improve Quality of Care and Patient Outcomes
The American Nurses Association (ANA) has issued a statement on immunizations to align with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the newly revised Code of Ethics for Nurses. ANA is calling for all individuals, including registered nurses, to be immunized against vaccine-preventable diseases, with the only exemptions being for medical or religious reasons. Here is the full Immunizations Position Statement.
ANA also issued a position statement on Incivility, Bullying, and Workplace Violence. It defines each term, identifying four distinct types of workplace violence, discusses the harm they can cause, reviews the responsibilities of RNs and employers, and offers preventative interventions.
