Policy Priority: Safe Staffing for Nurses Stephanie Minervini Chamberlain College of Nursing NR506: Health Care Policy July 2013 Introduction Inadequate staffing is becoming an increasing concern for not only nurses but the public as well. Research has found a strong connection between low nurse staffing and higher rates of patient complications. A study from the New England Journal of medicine determined that patient mortality was significantly related to nurse staffing levels. Staffing the right number of nurses with the right knowledge and skill base to meet the needs of patients is essential to achieving optimal nursing outcomes.

Together, the data made up the “Brandeis brief” that soon became famous worldwide. It stated things such as “accidents to working women occur most frequently at the close of the day, or after a long period of uninterrupted work,” and “the evil effect of overwork before as well as after marriage upon childbirth is marked and disastrous.” These harsh conditions, he said, also drove women to drink and go to saloons, instead of being fit mothers and keeping up with the housework. Muller’s attorney, however, argued that Oregon’s law violated women’s rights.
