More time at the bedside thanks to new management structures
From January 2019, the minimum staff levels will apply in the care-sensitive hospital areas. A year later, the “nursing staff quotient” is intended to point the way for nursing staff in German clinics. This not only moves nursing-related key figures, but also the question of future-oriented concepts of task distribution and responsibilities in nursing into the focus of the clinics. The voices from the practice see above all a problem in the mixing of management tasks and operative care at the bedside. From previous projects it has been shown that a skillful and process-oriented distribution of tasks and reorganization of the management structure with a focus on management roles are essential components to meet the challenges of the future.
