Thursday, September 30, 2004: Ohio: Nursing shortage in area abates:"Hospital vacancies drop from 19% to 9%:"The shortage of nurses in Greater Cincinnati has lessened considerably in the past year, as have vacancy rates for several other hard-to-fill health jobs, according to a report Wednesday from the Greater Cincinnati Health Council. As of June 30, about 9 percent of hospital nursing jobs were unfilled. That's much better than 19 percent as of year-end 2003 and 15 percent as of June 2003."

January 4, 2003: Ohio: Retirement leaves fond memories:"Joan Patterson was a local girl who came back home to work after achieving her goal to become a registered nurse. She spent her entire nursing career working at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital until her retirement on Jan. 1, 2003. A graduate of West Lafayette High School she earned her RN at Aultman School of Nursing in Canton, Ohio. "I always wanted to be a nurse and have never been sorry that I made that decision," Joan said. "I have been with Coshocton County Memorial for around 41 years. A co-worker pointed out to me just how many hours that added up to, and it is thousands and thousands," she said."

Nov. 22, 2002: Ohio: Nursing near crisis, dean warns:"Capers blamed the shortage on: An inaccurate image of nurses that doesn't recognize their training and important role in patient care. An increase in career options for women. Declining enrollment in nursing schools. It's dropped 36 percent in Ohio since 1995. The ``graying'' of the nursing work force as many registered nurses near retirement age. A lack of men considering nursing as a profession. Inadequate salaries to compensate for the level of training required to become a nurse. Dissatisfaction among nurses because of inadequate staffing, heavy workloads and increased overtime."

November 20, 2002: Ohio: High-tech: Kent-Tusc dedicates new building:"Bill Harding, president and CEO of Union Hospital at Dover, is a member of the advisory group for the nursing program and was pleased with the leap in technology. "We're most interested in the nursing program," Harding said. "That's our largest single category of employees, and there's a national nursing shortage. We're the largest clinical affiliate for students here. We have more nurses from Kent State-Tuscarawas than any other nursing program in the country, so it's critically important to us."

November 15, 2002: Ohio, Dayton: Heart Hospital doles out bonuses:"A big part of Dayton Heart's success is in an area causing major headaches for other hospitals — nurse retention. Pat Ashe, vice president of clinical services, said upon joining Dayton Heart in January 2001, her plan was simple: To fill the hospital's empty nursing slots and keep them filled. The results are obvious: Dayton Heart once had a 30 percent nursing vacancy rate but now has a waiting list for registered nurses, bucking the nationwide nursing shortage trend. "It wasn't a program, but a personal philosophy: Treat nurses as I want to be treated," said Ashe, a nurse for 30 years."

November 8, 2002: Ohio: Nursing Solutions: Health systems attack shortage of workers:"Faced with such daunting trends, the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations began organizing the Central Ohio Healthcare Workforce Task Force in August 2001. The group, which includes representatives of the four area hospital systems, area nursing colleges, Ohio Hospital Association and Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce, has since created the Columbus Healthcare Workforce Center. Staffed by the chamber, the center has compiled a stack of research findings on nurse recruitment, retention, education and marketing, said Cheryl Hay, the chamber's vice president for workforce development."

1999 News on The Nursing Shortage


Nursing Shortage Serious For Seniors, About.com:"As the population ages the impact of the nursing shortage will be even greater. There is a threat to the health of every older adult in the United States and Canada looming on the horizon. It is not a virus or new type of bacteria that is causing this threat. The threat to health is a result of the increasing shortage of nurses in both countries. Over the last couple of years there have been numerous stories in the press about the magnitude and causes of the shortage. So far solutions for this situation have been few. Additionally this nursing shortage will impact the oldest of citizens the most. Older adults use health care services at a higher rate than do younger people. Advances in medicine and improved nutrition and lifestyle have added years to the average life span. With this longer life comes higher needs for medical services, especially the services of professional nurses."

The Nurse/Patient Ratio by Genevieve M. Clavreul RN, Ph.D.:"The New Year heralds many things, and this year brings legislation mandating a patient/nurse ratio in California. But after the confetti stops falling, did we get what we want? We now have a panacea for thousands of nurses in California, however, the ratio really can’t be enforced. (At the writing of this article the companion bill for enforcement is stalled in the legislature, having been defeated at least once already). As my children are fond of saying, “why am I not surprised?” Having been a nurse for almost 30 years, most of those years spent in the NICU/PICU, I am used to working with a strict nurse/patient ratio. ICU’s and a few other areas of nursing have always been under the control of an “acuity” system. Actually, all nursing is supposed to be, but we all know this isn’t always the case. For this reason, I knew in my heart that legislating a nurse/patient ratio was probably an exercise in futility."

Nursing: A Medical Emergency, and Opportunity, hits home by Ronald A. Reis and Karen F. Reis RN:"You’re an RN, and you’ve been at it, administering to the sick and wounded, for months, years, maybe even decades. You’ve got your hands full with 12-hour shifts, high turnover, an often less than supportive work environment, and a stressed-out health care system that is, in places, itself on life-support. What to do? How to keep going? How to make this job, career, meaningful again? How to get out of nursing what you went into it for? How to avoid adding to the national nursing shortage by short-circuiting your own involvement in a noble profession?"

Preparing for Battle: What YOU can do for YOU, Sicker patients, reduced staffing, longer hours, and increased responsibilities—by Deborah Lynne, RN, BSN:"As Registered Nurses, few of us think of the hospital we work in as a battlefield, or of ourselves as soldiers. But the truth is, there are more similarities than you might think. We show up for our shift each day, not knowing what challenges we might encounter. Our job requires us to be in the moment at all times, and to make split second decisions on the run. What we do or don’t do can mean the difference between life and death. We often work under extreme stress, yet must remain calm and in control. Although there are others who function in a supportive capacity, we are the ones on the frontline."
