Missed nursing care: Magnet versus non-Magnet hospitals



Missed nursing care: Magnet versus non-Magnet hospitals



Nursing Outlook 60(5): E32



The objective of this study was to examine whether the amount, type, and reasons of missed nursing care differ between Magnet and non-Magnet hospitals. Data were collected from 124 medical-surgical, intermediate, intensive care, and rehabilitation units in 11 hospitals located in the Midwest and Western regions of the United States. A cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted. The MISSCARE Survey was utilized to collect data on the level of perceived missed nursing care, and nursing staffing data was collected for each study unit. Missed nursing care showed significant differences according to Magnet status. Separate analysis showed no staffing-level difference between Magnet and non-Magnet hospitals. The authors concluded that efficiencies in operations, work environment, and culture characterized by Magnet hospitals should be promoted.
