Nurse Staffing Shortages Now at a Critical Tipping Point

Nurse Staffing Shortages Tipping Point Card

A very interesting story was recently published by the New York Times regarding hospital nurse staffing shortages and responsiveness. The situation got so bad at a Cleveland hospital that a patient actually called her son hundreds of miles away to notify the hospital that she required in-room assistance.

Now just think how this embarrassing situation could have been easily avoided if the hospital had a nurse call system and staff workflow process that was fully optimized with the support of a next-generation Real-Time Location System like CenTrak. With an accurate RTLS infrastructure in place, assets, patients and staff can be located with 100% accuracy to enable improved workflow and efficiency. Knowing exactly when the last time a nurse has seen a patient also helps hospitals improve nurse rounding accountability and ultimately patient care and satisfaction.
