Rural hospitals with a lower nurse turnover rate as well as better work environments were more likely to use core measures in treating heart failure patients, according to a study in the journal Medical Care. Researchers noted that improved practice environments were particularly linked to better examination of the left ventricular ejection fraction. "The results of this study really speak to the central role nurses play in almost any quality improvement effort," study author and nurse Robin Newhouse said.
