How acuity-based staffing improves patient outcomes and enhances nurse satisfaction



Nurse staffing is an extremely complex task and being able to match the right nurse to the right patient at the right time requires an understanding of each patient’s individual care needs as well as the nursing skills required. Acuity-based staffing or scheduling takes into account the intensity of nursing care required by individual patients.

In this paper, we look at the benefits of acuity-based staffing including

  • Matching care with patients' dependency needs 
  • Creating schedules based on real-time patient data
  • Having the flexibility to update and change staffing plans
  • Increasing employee satisfaction and retention
  • Reducing costs and increasing efficiency
  • Implementing consistent policies and procedures across your entire health system
