How are high patient-to-nurse ratios affecting overall care?

Postby lcortiza » Wed Oct 26, 2016 8:24 am

Hello! I am doing a school project on how high patient-to-nurse ratios affect overall care. I need responses from nurses and there will be 5 questions in this survey. They are all yes or no questions. If you would like to elaborate on the questions, feel free to do so. If you do not want to answer a question, you do not have to.

Have you been negatively affected by high patient to nurse ratios?
Do you believe importing nurses will help the situation?
Do you believe adding more staff to nursing schools will help the situation?
Have patients ever been negatively affected where you work because there were not enough nurses?
Will this situation get worse overtime?
