Abstract

Executive Summary: This report presents the findings and recommendations from a preliminary investigation into how an NHS organisation manages sudden nursing staff shortfalls. Unexpected staff absences, which can occur on a daily basis, can impact on the optimum skill mix for safe effective care delivery. Ward managers would welcome methodological support for daily rescheduling staff (i.e., re-rostering) within electronic rostering systems
