Finance and nursing executives face many uncertainties in today’s healthcare environment, but one factor still under their control is the cost of labor. An investment in labor is an investment in quality, but like any other transaction, hospital leaders want the best return from their dollars. Acuity-based staffing is a valuable tool for maximizing those returns because it ensures the right staff are in the right place at the right time – essential goals as healthcare leaders face a worsening nursing shortage and continuing demands to do more with less.
In this fast-paced, one-hour webinar, a leading researcher will share the latest data related to the financial impact of acuity-based staffing. The panel will explain how a partnership between the two is effective in implementing acuity-based staffing so that it yields significant financial benefits for your organization. This is an ideal webinar for both CFOs and CNOs to attend.

“Skin tears” may sound like a relatively minor event, but in reality, these injuries can have a significant impact on the quality of patients’ lives in the form of pain, infection, and limited mobility. The incidence of skin tears has been reported to be as high as 1.5 million annually, and with an aging population, this number is likely to go higher. In this webinar, experts will explain how nurses can use an evidence-based approach—including following practice guidelines to assess the wound and select the proper dressing—for managing skin tears and minimizing their negative effects.
