Nurse work environment and its impact on reasons for missed care, safety climate, and job satisfaction: a cross-sectional study.

Dutra CK dos R, Guirardello E de B. J Adv Nurs. 2021;77(5):2398-2406.

This cross-sectional study describes the relationship between nurse work environment and missed nursing care, safety culture, and job satisfaction. Nurses who perceived a positive work environment reported reduced reasons for missed nursing care, an improved safety culture, and increased job satisfaction. Reasons for missed care were primarily related to lack of leadership support and resources. Nurse managers can increase perception of a positive work environment by providing additional support and adequate human and material resources.
