Description and factors associated with missed nursing care in an acute care community hospital.

Duffy JR, Culp S, Padrutt T. The Journal of nursing administration. 2018;48:361-367.

Using survey data from a sample of nurses at a single community hospital, researchers found that reduced nurse staffing, lower job satisfaction, and decreased satisfaction with teamwork were important factors related to missed nursing care.
