Nurse staffing levels linked to reports of missed care in adult wards Nurse staffing levels linked to reports of missed care in adult wards Discover Portal Discover Portal Nurse staffing levels linked to reports of missed care in adult wards Published on 10 July 2018 doi: Nurses are more likely to report omitting necessary care in acute inpatient wards when registered nurse staffing levels are low, even if there are additional healthcare assistants. Care categorised as planning (...) and communication is reported as missed more often than clinical care. NHS hospitals are responsible for ensuring that the number and skills mix of nursing staff matches patient needs. Previous reviews have shown links between lower registered nurse staffing levels and poor patient outcomes such as higher mortality. This review of 18 observational studies sought to clarify if measuring levels of reported ‘missed nursing care’ might partly explain these relationships. The findings of this international review
Effectiveness of different nursing handover styles for ensuring continuity of information in hospitalised patients. An accurate handover of clinical information is of great importance to continuity and safety of care.

During the last decade the call for interventions to improve handovers has increased (...) . These interventions aim to reduce the risk of miscommunication, misunderstanding and the omission of critical information.To determine the effectiveness of interventions designed to improve hospital nursing handover, specifically:to identify which nursing handover style(s) are associated with improved outcomes for patients in the hospital setting and which nursing handover style(s) are associated with improved nursing process outcomes.We searched the following electronic databases for primary studies: Cochrane
