Favorite’s YouTube Videos Salute Nurses Everywhere!
Favorite Healthcare Staffing proudly honors the
Although we appreciate nurses every day of every year, we always enjoy the opportunity
to publicly appreciate each of you during Nurses Week. Through more than 30 years in healthcare staffing, Favorite is especially aware of how important it has been
to stay balanced in our focus throughout those years, never forgetting that nurses
have been and continue to be our foundation.
The Nurses Week theme in 2011 inspired the special video below as we focused on the relationship
between fitness and the capability to care. In spite of their many roles, stresses,
and commitments, nurses remain balanced and fit personally, professionally, socially,
and spiritually. We asked them to share pictures and video clips to help us understand
while making it fun in the process.
From their submissions, we created a YouTube Video.
This is one of several Nurses Week videos currently online now at Favorite’s YouTube channel, FavoriteStaffing. Visit YouTube or simply click the embedded link
below to play this fun video. As you enjoy the smiles, the adventures, and
the inspiration these nurses share, join us in saluting them and all healthcare
professionals for their extraordinary dedication, compassion, and conviction.
Joint Commission Sentinel Alerts
It is the responsibility of each Favorite employee to become familiar with and follow Favorite’s policies, as well as corresponding policies and procedures of facilities to which they are assigned.
Safe Use of Opioids in Hospitals
Although hospital patients may need the strong pain relief that only opioids can provide, The Joint Commission urges hospitals to take specific steps to prevent serious complications or even deaths from opioid use.
While opioid use is generally safe for most patients, opioid analgesics may be associated with adverse effects, the most serious effect being respiratory depression, which is generally preceded by sedation. Other common adverse effects associated with opioid therapy include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, sedation, delirium, hallucinations, falls, hypotension, and aspiration pneumonia. Adverse events can occur with the use of any opioid; among these are fentanyl, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, methadone, morphine, oxycodone, and sufentanil. While there are numerous problems associated with opioid use, including underprescribing, overprescribing, tolerance, dependence, and drug abuse, this Alert will focus on the safe use of opioids that are prescribed and administered within the inpatient hospital setting.
The Joint Commission recognizes that the emergency department presents unique challenges that should also be addressed by the hospital, but may not be directly addressed in this Alert. This Alert will provide a number of actions that can be taken to avoid the unintended consequences of opioid use among hospital inpatients.
The safe use of opioids in hospital settings relies on an accurate pain assessment and then applying appropriate pain management techniques. As an employee of Favorite you are required to abide by the policies and procedures set forth by your assigned facilities. Please refer to guidance from your assigned facility on this important Sentinel Event.
More information can be found on Sentinel Event Alert Issue 49: Safe use of opioids in hospitals can be found on The Joint Commission website at: http://www.jointcommission.org/sentinel_event.aspx
Health care worker fatigue and patient safety
The Joint Commission urges hospitals and workers to be aware of health care worker fatigue and how it can impact adverse events, as well as patient and personal safety by taking preventative steps.
The link between health care worker fatigue and adverse events is well documented, with a substantial number of studies indicating that the practice of extended work hours contributes to high levels of worker fatigue and reduced productivity. These studies and others show that fatigue increases the risk of adverse events, compromises patient safety, and increases risk to personal safety and well-being. While it is acknowledged that many factors contribute to fatigue, including but not limited to insufficient staffing and excessive workloads, the purpose of this Sentinel Event Alert is to address the effects and risks of an extended workday and of cumulative days of extended work hours.
More information can be found on Sentinel Event Alert Issue 48: Health care worker fatigue and patient safety can be found on The Joint Commission website at: http://www.jointcommission.org/sea_issue_48.
New Joint Commission Sentinel Alert on Diagnostic Radiation Use
While diagnostic radiation tests can help save lives, a new Joint Commission Sentinel Event Alert warns that health care organizations must seek new
ways to reduce exposure to repeated doses of harmful radiation from these
diagnostic procedures. Several recent studies have raised concerns about the risk
of cancer from diagnostic imaging, especially in vulnerable populations such as
children, young adults, and pregnant women.
The specific actions suggested by The Joint Commission include:
More information can be found on Sentinel Event Alert Issue 47: Radiation risks of diagnostic imaging can be found on The Joint Commission website at: http://www.jointcommission.org/sentinel_event.aspx
- Use of imaging techniques other than CT, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI), and collaboration between radiologists and referring physicians about
the appropriate use of diagnostic imaging.
- Adherence to the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission’s ALARA (“as low as reasonably achievable”) guidelines,
as well as guidelines from the Society
for Pediatric Radiology, American
College of Radiology and the Radiological
Society of North America for imaging for children and adults, respectively.
- Assurance by radiologists that the proper dosing protocol is in place for the patient
being treated and review of all dosing protocols against the latest evidence either
annually or every two years.
- Expansion of the radiation safety officer’s role to explicitly include patient
safety as it relates to radiation and dosing, as well as education on proper dosing
and equipment usage for all physicians and technologists who prescribe diagnostic
radiation or use diagnostic radiation equipment.
- Implementation of centralized quality and safety performance monitoring of all diagnostic
imaging equipment that may emit high amounts of radiation cumulatively.
Joint Commission Sentinel Alert Updates Prevention
With a focus on general hospitals and prevention of suicide in medical/surgical
units and the emergency department, the Joint Commission’s most recent Sentinel
Event Alert updates the prevention strategies previously presented in the 1998 Alert.
The goal of this Alert is assurance that patients outside of psychiatric units are
appropriately screened and cared for.
Recognizing At-Risk Patients
Typically, medical/surgical units and emergency departments are not designed
or assessed for suicide risk and do not have staff with specialized training to
deal with suicidal individuals. To effectively reduce suicide risk in these settings,
organizations need to identify and intervene with at-risk patients to prevent suicide.
Organizations should recognize that there is a need to distinguish between long-term
risk factors and "red flags" that indicate immediate risk. Healthcare professionals
must be educated about the risk factors recent attempt or suicidal thoughts, family
history, antidepressant use, physical health injuries, traumatic brain injury, chronic
pain, delirium and social stressors etc.) and warning signs (increased anxiety, irritability,
agitation, impulsivity, declining treatment etc.) and subsequent actions.
Many of Favorite’s client facilities will have information directly related to how
their facility monitors, screens and treats patients with suicide risk factors and/or
warning signs. Check with your assigned facilities regarding these issues.

KPMG US Hospital Nursing Labor Costs Study Reveal Valuable Insights
Study shows optimum levels and quality trump cost in staffing decisions!
As economic recovery continues, hospital and healthcare executives face ongoing pressures to manage labor costs with a diminishing nursing work force without
forfeiting the level of quality patient care. A 2011 study released by KPMG, LLP presents the hospitals’ views on quality patient care,
direct employee labor costs, and temporary nurse usage.
According to Mark Stagen, NATHO President, "The study offers an unbiased view
of the comprehensive costs associated with full-time, direct care nurses and the
financial impact of utilizing direct care staff to manage a hospital’s fluctuating
demand for clinicians." "Findings are drawn from the responses of those
at the heart of the industry, offering valuable insight on current trends and future
opportunities. The study also seems to confirm what many of our members have said
all along that the cost of a permanent RN isn’t that different than the cost of
a travel nurse." NATHO is a non-profit association of travel healthcare staffing organizations which creates
and enforces standards of practice, ethics, and dispute resolution. Favorite
Healthcare Staffing is a proud member of NATHO.
The study indicated that two-thirds of the survey respondents currently use travel
or per diem nurses at their facilities. The primary reasons cited for using travel
nurses are basic supply and demand, coupled with the quality of these nurses.
Overall, the survey indicated that optimum staffing levels and quality are more
important decision factors to these executives than cost. The staffing balance identified
by these respondents as ideal is 90% permanent staff and 10% supplemental labor.

Groundbreaking Study Supports the Value
of Temporary Nursing
A study released in the Journal of
Nursing Administration regarding Supplemental Nurse Staffing in Hospitals and Quality
of Care is particularly meaningful in addressing and dispelling unfounded
concerns about safety and quality patient outcomes when using supplemental staff.
In one news release, Richard Wahlquist, the President/CEO of the American Staffing
Association said, ”This study shows what we have known all along -- that temporary
and contract nurses are highly skilled professionals who provide high-quality care.
They play a vital role in our health care system, and this research validates the
positive impact they have on patient outcomes.”
Contrary to commonly-held misperceptions about the value of temporary nurses, the
- The use of temporary nurses actually reduces nurse burnout and improves patient
- Nurses employed by staffing companies are as well as or better qualified than permanent
nurses employed by hospitals.
- Temporary nurses are more likely to have baccalaureate or higher degrees and to
have received their education in the past 10 years.
- Most temporary nurses work primarily as hospital staff nurses, and their temporary
jobs are secondary.
At Favorite, we’ve always known that temporary nurses provide a wide range of valuable
services and quality patient outcomes for our clients. The study noted that 75%
of hospitals currently use supplemental nurses.
