Find out more about how to improve the nurse-patient connection in this new white paper, The Nurse-Patient Connection, including the four major obstacles that get in the way. Nurses struggle with these job performance challenges:
1) allocating time
2) EHR difficulties
3) physical strain
4) unsuitable workstations
There are a number of proven ways to overcome those obstacles. Addressing substandard physical spaces, convoluted work flows, and poor ergonomics is one key. Research shows that improving the physical working environment for nurses boosts their satisfaction, and ultimately, direct patient care and clinical outcomes.
Ergonomic workstation and medication carts of all styles can help increase nurse comfort, reduce walking time, and allow nurses to engage more with patients and other members of the healthcare team.
The cumulative takeaway? When you improve the environment, you improve the outcomes.
