In our 2015 research paper—Nursing Special Report: The Influence of Nurse Work Environment on Patient, Payment and Nurse Outcomes in Acute Care Settings—Press Ganey examines the impact of work environment on key performance measures.

Based on an integrated analysis of data across multiple performance domains, findings provide actionable insights to help health system leaders:

  • Understand the relationship between nurse work environment, staffing and key performance measures.
  • Identify the impact of nurse work environment on patient safety, quality, experience and value measures.
  • Prioritize improvement opportunities to optimize efficiency and reduce patient suffering.

Research findings outline insights and recommendations for improving nurse work environment to drive improvement across all measures.
