A healthcare researcher weighs in on the nurse-to-patient ratio debate

Listen to KUOW's interview with Dr. @polly_pittman discussing Washington's state consideration of a new law that would set nurse-to-patient ratios at hospitals. Dr. Pittman says,
" We know that patients die more frequently if there’s low nurse staffing"
http://ow.ly/ox3250HUx7x

‘There's really been decades of research and hundreds of studies that have shown that low nurse-to-patient staffing ratios have a negative effect on patient outcomes.’

Travel nurse salaries driven up in the pandemic, creating 'unsustainable' hospital costs

Patricia Pittman, a professor of health policy and management at the School of Public Health at George Washington University, has called travel nurses “a double-edged sword” — helpful in times of high need but an “excuse” for hospitals not to focus on staffing issues. And she blames short-sighted policies by hospitals that have viewed nurses “as a cost that could be cut when times were tough,” she told GBH News. In the first wave of the pandemic, for instance, Pittman said many hospitals laid off or furloughed nurses in units where elective surgeries were suspended.

“So now, when staffing agencies raised their prices and began paying nurses so much more than they earn in the regular jobs, it has been a shock to hospitals,” said Pittman, who's hopeful the high pay for travel nurses forces hospitals to reconsider pay and retention of staff nurses.

Workforce Trackers

To improve health workforce equity, the Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity (GWMI) tracks who is providing services, what services, where, and for whom.

This allows us to approximate the adequacy of the health workforce supply for specific populations. Researchers, policymakers, and advocates can use these interactive trackers to select variables depending on their own priorities.

11/09/2021

The direct care worker shortage crisis is partly driven by persistent low wages keeping many workers in poverty. Investments in #HCBS through the #AmericanRescuePlan can change that. We found that state plans include 2 main ways to get money into DCWs pockets: wage increases and bonuses. However, most state plans lack details about either. Also, any mention of benefits for DCWs is conspicuously absent from nearly all plans.

Under most state plans, agencies employing DCWs will have considerable discretion on how much money will reach this #essentialworkforce. Going forward, it will be critical to track and evaluate DCW compensation patterns. Developments to watch out for: 6% FMAP increase for HCBS improvement under revised #BudgetReconcilation and the #BetterJobsBetterCare Act.

Check out our Health Affairs blog to see how states are planning to use #AmericanRescuePlan funds to improve direct care worker (DCW) compensation: (bit.ly/30dQkeu)

#Moral_Injury among #Nurses is on everyone's mind. Moral injury occurs when nurses are forced to act or bear witness to acts that transgress deeply held moral beliefs and expectations. It is one of the major causes of burnout.
Interviewed by Dr. Nurse Dan, Dr. Polly Pittman, professor, and director of the Mullan Institute at GWU describes a new project examining the root causes of moral injury and calls for #Change in #Policy to protect nurses from moral injuries.

Access to family planning improves health outcomes, quality of life, and economic and educational achievement, but 50% of US counties do not have OBGYNs or nurse midwives who provider this essential service. The U.S. Contraception Workforce Tracker identifies gaps in prescription contraceptive care, including the pill, the patch, and the ring, to help policymakers and researchers increase access to these services and improve quality of care, especially in underserved populations.

GWMI researchers recommend the use of the Health Workforce Diversity Tracker methodology worldwide to measure and track racial, ethnic, tribal, religious and regional health inequities. While our focus on race and ethnicity, may or may not be applicable to other countries, there are inequities and health disparities in most countries with different population groups related to their characteristics. This could include tribal regional, or religious minority groups in a country. The concept is collecting and using data to identify underrepresentation in health professions to help address inequities and health disparities.

👏Congratulations to Lucy Saenz, CPCA's Deputy Director of Data Informatics, on being selected to serve on the Health Center Workforce Diversity Data and Metrics National Advisory Group! #data #workforce National Association of Community Health Centers The George Washington University Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity,
We are so happy to be a part of the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity Study: Moral Injury Among Nurses. AMSN is doing its part by collecting and sharing nurses’ stories from a variety of settings. Additionally, AMSN will use the data of medical-surgical nurses' experiences of moral injury to further develop resources and education for med-surg nurses and will use these findings to amplify the system level issues you face and to advocate on your behalf. If you would like to submit your story for this study, click the link below to learn more. https://www.gwhwi.org/moralinjury.html #medsurg #medsurgnurse #nursing #nurse
A new online tool developed by the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity may revolutionize the way that #diversity is assessed in health care education and professions.
GW's Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity was awarded a $6 million grant by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to help health institutions combat burnout among health care and public safety workers. This is the largest investment to date in addressing the mounting crisis.

GW’s Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity has announced the launch of the Health Workforce Diversity Tracker, an interactive online tool that provides extensive data on the diversity of critical health professions.
In their new blog, Erin Brantley, Mandar Bodas, Candice Chen, Patricia Pittman, Jeff Levi, Naomi Seiler, Anne Markus, Marsha Regenstein, Peter Shin, and Sara Rosenbaum from The George Washington University, Elsevier, and Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity and discuss how the House-Passed Build Back Better Act would direct tens of billions of dollars to strengthen core public health and health workforce capabilities in ways that would build on proven successes, set in motion longstanding recommendations from experts, and ultimately position the nation to face 21st century health challenges from a position of greater strength. "These investments, like many of the BBB’s health insurance reforms, are time limited. But together, they would direct tens of billions of dollars to strengthen core public health and health workforce capabilities in ways that would build on proven successes, set in motion longstanding recommendations from experts, and ultimately position the nation to face 21st century health challenges from a position of greater strength."

In their new blog, Edward S. Salsberg and Candice Chen of the GW Health Workforce Institute discuss how there has been steady growth in graduate medical education (GME) positions without any major new federal dollars and that GME growth has more than kept pace with increases in graduating MD and DO seniors. "GME—the residency and fellowship training where physicians differentiate into specialties—is a critical determinant of the physician workforce. GME is required for every physician seeking to become licensed to practice medicine. As such, GME determines the overall supply and specialty distribution of the future physician workforce (and to a certain extent, the geographical distribution and practice in rural and underserved settings)."
