Abstract

AbstractOBJECTIVE:The aim of this study is to explore the relations of workplace culture on nursing-sensitive organizational factors.BACKGROUND:The need for standardized and valid measures for nursing-sensitive organizational outcomes has already been recognized in the literature.METHODS:A cross-sectional questionnaire survey of 21 inpatient acute care units in 9 organizations at the municipal primary healthcare level was conducted. Participants included licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, and nurse managers.RESULTS:Workplace culture, especially the overarching factor of stress, correlated with the use of supplemental nursing staff and patients' length of stay.CONCLUSION:It is essential to find and test workplace-sensitive indicators so that managers will have a wider range of methods to plan and evaluate nursing outcomes.
