Abstract

Safe nursing staffing and patient safety are closely related. A systematic review of the literature was carried out, comparing the number of falls in elderly inpatients in medical-surgical wards with these staffing levels. A review of scientific articles, selected through a keyword search of several electronic databases, showed a direct, although not significant, association between improved nurse staffing and a decrease in the number of falls in elderly inpatients.
