The article discusses a research study that examined the movement of patients on and off hospital wards in public hospitals in Australia. Case-mix changes on nursing wards were also examined. Researchers found that the absence of ward-level metrics compromises the ability of nursing unit managers to meet quality and efficiency standards. Researchers believe that measurements of turnover give nurses another way to talk to management about the work of nursing.
