To change nursing assignments and transform workforce management, hospitals need to plan differently!

Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania are getting ready to vote on legislation to mandate nurse-patient ratios like California did.

We learned from California that without a sound workforce planning methodology that can be consistently executed, hospitals won’t obtain the benefits of the increased staff [1].

The Nash Group SDM20/20™ planning methodology is proven to:

  • reduce labor cost $2M-$8M
  • dismantle consumption of premium dollars
  • advance patient placement and aggregation
  • improve patient disposition and reduce length of stay
  • increase staff retention 20%-40% and improve recruitment cycles
  • make workforce operations and schedules sustainable
