This view is preferable because the larger needs are being met and handled so that there will be more  attention and focus on providing the care needed for patients. Others will handle the less important  tasks or they will be left undone until a later time. This can be appreciated because you cannot do  everything so being able to balance the needs of everyone is what is important.  2. Describe how the long-term need for nurses is determined and the shift-by-shift variation in  need accommodated? (See also Chapter 8, Additional QFD 2.6.) The long-term need for nurses is determined by fixed staffing where demand does not vary. Flexible  labor budgets use variable staffing models to adjust the actual staff according to patient need, usually  on a shift by shift schedule (page 233). 3. Safe practices: What is the role of the National Quality Forum (NQF) in developing guidelines for safe  nursing practices? Refer to Exhibit 7.9 to identify examples of nursing practices that contribute to  improved quality and safety.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
