At What Cost?

Kerri Mucci over at Stressed Out Nurses shares a pivotal piece of research information by the ANA on the price ticket on the nursing profession.

Study findings calculate that adding 133,000 nurses to the acute care hospital setting would save 5,900 patients’ lives per year and result in more than $1.3 billion in hospital savings, which translates to approximately $9,900 in savings per additional nurse each year.

Thanks Kerri.

And to answer her question. I’m not at all surprised. I don’t think there is a nurse out there who is.

Carpe Diem
