The directive required each VHA hospital across the nation to develop unit-based expert panels to determine required nursing hours per patient day to deliver activities similar to the NIW used in measuring nursing acuity (Taylor et al.
In terms of nursing care hours per patient day, hospitals with higher levels of RN care hours reported lower levels of falls and trauma; hospitals with higher levels of LPN/LVN care hours reported fewer hospital-acquired conditions.
Total hours of nursing care per patient day (HPPD) included total hours (RN + Licensed Vocational Nurses [LVN] + unlicensed) and licensed hours (RN + LVN).
Moreover, increasing staffing by one RN per patient day resulted in lower rates of hospital-acquired pneumonia, respiratory failure and cardiac arrest in intensive care units.
We used three variables to capture hospital costs associated with delivering healthcare and Porter's (1980) cost leadership dimension: cost adjusted per patient day, salary adjusted per patient day, and man-hours adjusted per patient day.
A measure that is being considered for comparison of nurse staffing is the total nursing hours per patient day (NHPPD).
Nurse-sensitive quality indicators for acute care settings have been identified as mix of RNs, LPNs, and unlicensed personnel caring for patients; total nursing care hours provided per patient day, pressure ulcers, patient falls, patient satisfaction with pain management, patient satisfaction with educational material, patient satisfaction with overall care, patient satisfaction with nursing care, nosocomial infection rate, and nurse staff satisfaction.
The federal government's recently concluded Data Assessment and Verification (DAVE) project, which focused on this question, found areas (specifically ADLs) that are typically undercoded, with a potential loss of reimbursement of up to $30 per patient day for Medicare and $1 per patient day for Medicaid.
2) Another study showed a relationship between full-time-equivalent (FTE) RNs per patient day and urinary tract infections, pneumonia, thrombosis and pulmonary compromise after major surgery.
Comparison among laboratories is usually based upon costs per patient day, costs per test/CPT code, or costs per accession (patient order).
Imputed total staffing minutes per patient day were only 1.
