IHI Seminar Invitation: Reengineering the OR

Nurse understaffing can have a significant impact on many aspects of patient care, including time at the bedside, communication with patients and families, patient safety, and clinical outcomes. A recent study by Needleman, et al. in the New England Journal of Medicine adds to growing literature suggesting that suboptimal staffing levels even are associated with a higher rate of inpatient mortality, especially when patient turnover is high. Flexible staffing that matches capacity to demand is essential to addressing this critical clinical and safety issue.

Learn how to match capacity to demand — and much more — by joining the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) for Reengineering the Operating Room to Improve Hospital-Wide Efficiency and Quality on June 9-10, 2011, in Boston, MA.
