A UK nursing study has suggested that there is a need for clear policies on rostering that define staff levels, skill mix and shift patterns. It found that rosters were “highly politicised” and rule governing how nursing staff were scheduled were “undocumented, tacit and informal”.
What do you think?
- How are the rules for the roster defined in your clinical area?
- Are the rules transparent and fair?
- Have electronic rostering systems resulted in a more equitable system?
