Abstract

According to this study:

 

* Hospitals with better nurse staffing have significantly lower 30-day excess readmission rates for heart failure.

 

* Although the reasons for this aren't entirely clear, it may be because nurses caring for fewer patients have more time for direct patient care and patient and family education.
