SRDF Summary Report: May 2012 - May 2014

Staffing Request and Documentation Forms (SRDF) are filled out by staff nurses or charge nurses at 30 acute care facilities represented by the Oregon Nurses Association (ONA), to document the occurrence of an inappropriate staffing event on a specific shift and unit. We report on an analysis of 1,780 SRDFs submitted over a two-year period ranging from May 1, 2012 to April 30, 2014. There was a 5.3% year-over-year increase of total SRDFs submitted for the two-year reporting period. We highlight several key observations from the analysis in the report.
