Does the decentralized nursing model deliver?
from Healthcare Design
The decentralized nursing operations and physical design model was introduced to inpatient units more than 10 years ago, with a number of expected positive outcomes for staff. Those include reduced nurse walking distances, more time at the bedside, less stress, improved productivity, and enhanced collaboration, among others. In essence, it was anticipated that the move would improve efficiency and safety, workplace condition, and care quality.
