“In my role as CNO I recognize the critical role that our nurse leaders play. They are passionate about delivering our clinical goals and they understand both their clinical and financial accountabilities.
Nyack Hospital, Nyack, N.Y. (375 beds)
“Defined RN-to-patient ratios have for the most part been successfully maintained for each patient care center and the need for mandatory overtime has been significantly reduced. In addition, the nursing department has continued to reduce agency costs by filling RN vacancies so that RNs are readily available for each patient care center…. Overall, staff satisfaction has improved using the new model once nurses adjusted to working in ‘full units’ and the staff learned what could be expected on any given shift.”

We hired Nash because we had challenges keeping staffing level and identifying FTE versus bodies. One of our challenges was keeping the care team consistent so that nurses can reliably know the patient ratio.

They bring in a proven product — a scheduling system that works. We are using it to this day and have seen several million dollars in savings.

The experience was excellent. Nash fully engages with you and your team. 100% of the work is face-to-face, which really makes a huge difference in this scenario. The Nash team was also able to effectively engage nurse managers. They worked right alongside them.
