Staffing Levels - Getting It Right for Patients and Staff

Tuesday, July 27, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. CT

Evaluating and meeting our staffing needs is one of the most important and complex challenges facing hospitals, long term care facilities and other health care settings today. Providing appropriate staffing levels requires both a rigorous patient volume and acuity measurement system and a sufficient and flexible staffing plan. This webinar will address both of these critical imperatives. Our patients deserve and our employees demand that we do a better job of getting our staffing levels right.



  1. Understand how improving communication and connection in health care organizations increases employee engagement, wellbeing and, ultimately, patient care. 
  2. Recognize why giving employees seamless access to technology solutions helps create cultures of recognition and appreciation.
  3. Obtain practical, tactical ideas for how to positively impact the teams you support.
