The Effects of Nurse Presenteeism on Quality of Care and Patient Safety

This presentation was made at the fifth annual meeting of the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative and was given by Susan Letvak and Sat Gupta. The primary aim of this project was to evaluate the influence of presenteeism (decreased productivity due to health problems) on hospital Registered Nurses' quality of patient care. A secondary aim is to assess economic costs to the healthcare system associated with presenteeism. The study used a mixed methods (quantitative survey and qualitative focus groups) design of RNs in North Carolina.
