New Survey Finds Hospital Nurses Spend Half of Each Shift on Tasks Other Than Patient Care
Date:5/9/2013

se every day. Only 19% of staff nurses feel they have a chance to evaluate new devices, while 47% of nurse leaders believe staff nurses have that input. So while CNOs have a strong voice in buying decisions, their voices may not necessarily reflect the working realities of staff nurses.

“It’s encouraging to see that CNOs are gaining a seat at the table when it comes to selecting clinical communication devices,” said Anderson. “It’s obvious our next step is to start including staff nurses in the process, since they’re in the trenches on a daily basis and really understand which tools will help them provide exceptional patient care.”

Voalte and American Nurse Today conducted the survey in January and February of 2013. Respondents included 464 nurse leaders and 658 staff nurses, for a total of 1,122 respondents. For this Special Report, we cited results from 226 nurse leaders and 287 staff nurses at acute care hospitals only.

“Effective, timely and ‘smart’ communication is key for nurses who provide quality patient care,” said Greg Osborne, Group Publisher and President of HealthCom Media, publisher of American Nurse Today. “We are committed to ongoing initiatives that keep the conversation going to involve all nurses in maximizing their work environment and the quality of nursing care, and ensuring optimal patient outcomes.”
