The Impact of Staffing Practices on Hospital Costs and Quality

Sponsored by

Nurse scheduling is complex. Schedulers have to balance patient demand and clinical requirements with skill sets and work practices in order to build balanced care teams that can provide quality care to patients.

Accomplishing this is a feat in and of itself, but from the time the schedule is published through the day-of-operations, even the best schedules unravel as patient census and acuity evolve and employees swap, drop or can't arrive for shifts.

How your organization responds to, communicates about and manages the unpredictable schedule changes can dramatically impact both your labor cost and quality of care.

Join this webinar on Tuesday, June 20th at 1pm ET to explore the best practices to quickly and effectively make a sustainable positive impact on labor cost and quality of care. Register for this free event now!
