Patient safety, satisfaction, and quality of hospital care

In follow-up of the international conference “Ensuring tomorrow’s health: workforce planning and mobility”, held on 7-9 December 2011 in Brussels, the project RN4CAST published an article on “Patient safety, satisfaction, and quality of hospital care” highlighting findings from 13 countries which shows that in hospitals with better work environments and fewer patients in each nurse’s workload, patients and nurses both reported higher standards of care and patients are more satisfied, and that improvement of hospital work environments might be a relatively low cost strategy to improve safety and quality in hospital care and to increase patient satisfaction.  The full article has been published in the British Medical Journal and is available here.
