Dr. Cynthia Bacon

Dr. Cynthia Bacon (Adult Health Nursing) received new funding from Cone Health System for the project Improving quality and safety outcomes using the workload intensity staffing delivery of care model.

Robust nurse staffing in hospitals is associated with better outcomes for patients including reductions in preventable death and overall death, improved patient satisfaction and decreased infections. What is unclear is which care delivery model best improves these patient outcomes. The primary aim of the study is to investigate the impact of an innovative workload intensity staffing model on patient outcomes in the patient care units in a hospital.
