Higher Quality of Care and Patient Safety Associated with Better NICU Work Environments

MartinaMartina Administrator admin

From Journal of Nursing Care Quality: Dr. Lake and colleagues describe their study on the associations between the NICU work environment, quality of care, safety, and patient outcomes. A secondary analysis was conducted of responses of 1247 NICU staff nurses in 171 hospitals to a large nurse survey. Better work environments were associated with lower odds of nurses reporting poor quality, safety, and outcomes. Improving the work environment may be a promising strategy to achieve safer settings for at-risk newborns.
