Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/23/2015 -- ImageFIRST Pittsburgh is a leading provider of high-quality patient and staff apparel, nurse scrubs, and more in Pittsburgh, PA. However, in addition to providing these services, one of the things that the company does is aid their clients in staying abreast of all of the latest trends and changes within the healthcare industry. In fact, this remarkable company would like to let both current and potential clients know that there was a new Nursing Special Report released by Pres Ganey, an organization that helps healthcare facilities understand what they need to improve the patient experience.
The report, "The Influence of Nurse Work Environment on Patient, Payment and Nurse Outcomes in Acute Care Settings," sheds light on how Press Ganey discovered that the environment a nurse works in can directly affect the experience a patient has at a medical facility. Some of the findings in the report even demonstrated that some Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys received positive feedback because of the attention that they received from nurses or RNs during their stay. Lastly, the report also illustrates how Press Ganey saw that environments that were positive for the nurse also affected how well they treated patients, and thus impacted the scores that patients gave on the HCAHPS.
As a company that helps medical institutions improve not only the experience their patients have at their facility but also that of their staff, ImageFIRST Pittsburgh hopes that current and potential clients take the findings of this report into consideration for the future.
