Confronting COVID-19: Finding Hospital Capacity and Improving Patient Flow
A Webinar Series Hosted by PCORI for Hospitals and Health Systems
On April 21, 2020, PCORI continued the webinar series with "Part 4 - Nurse Staffing amid COVID-19." Nurses, who are on the frontlines of health care every day, are now confronting the ever-evolving challenges imposed by COVID-19. Health systems, nursing leaders, and nurses have had to address issues ranging from the availability and appropriate use of personal protective equipment, staffing capacity for intensive care unit beds, staff anxiety and overload, and much more. During this webinar, critical care nurse leaders from different parts of the country described how their health systems have responded to nurse staffing needs amid surge and crisis response during the past few weeks.
