National Campaign for Safe RN-to-Patient Staffing Ratios

Submitted by ADonahue on May 10, 2021

Some nurses call it “nurse-to-patient ratios.” Others call it “safe staffing” or “patient limits.” No matter how we label the concept, registered nurses across the United States and, indeed, the globe understand the need to set a minimum number of nurses to safely care for a certain number of patients, with adjustments to increase nurse staffing based on patient acuity. Staffing decisions made by hospital administrators — based on budgetary rather than clinical considerations — do not ensure patients are receiving optimal care.
