The Patient Safety Initiative and Hospital Nurse Staffing
Hospital nurse staffing has an important relationship to patient safety and quality of care.
Under a broad initiative focusing on patient safety issues, AHRQ has funded a group of
projects on understanding the impact of working conditions on patient safety. Researchers are
examining the critical issues of how staffing, fatigue, stress, sleep deprivation, organizational

culture, shift work, and other factors can lead to errors. The work environment for nurses and
patient safety identified key aspects of the work environment for nursesincluding extended
hours and workloadthat likely have an impact on patient safety, and identified potential
improvements in health care working conditions that could result in enhanced patient safety.
