NYUCN receives $299 thousand from NCSBN to study patient safety in nursing homes
Date:10/27/2011

New York University College of Nursing (NYUCN) received a two-year, $299,990.00 grant from the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Grant (NCSBN) to research the "Impact of an Internationally Educated Nurse Workforce on Patient Safety Processes and Outcomes in Nursing Homes." According to the Principal Investigator, Laura Wagner, the purpose of the study is to meet the NCSBN's Patient Safety, Practice (LPN/VN, RN), and International Regulatory Issues Research Priorities.

"In our study, we will use a cross-sectional, descriptive, comparative study and multiple data sources to examine patient safety processes and outcomes among a cohort of RNs and LPNs/VNs working in nursing homes in five states," said NYUCN Assistant Professor of Nursing Laura Wagner, PhD, RN. "We plan to compare differences and similarities to nurses who are both internationally and domestically educated in their responses to care processes such as perceptions of patient safety culture, disclosure of adverse event information, barriers to medication error reporting, and communication with the health care team," she said.

Additionally, the study will link these data with a large administrative nursing home database to examine whether there are differences in care safety outcomes such as use of physical restraints and occurrence of pressure ulcers.

"Most importantly, the NCSBN can use study findings to better support nurses who work in nursing homes and to evaluate the need to assess patient safety preparedness in RNs and LPNs seeking employment in these settings," said Wagner.
