Nurse deployment patterns : examples for health human resource management Kazanjian, Arminée, 1947-; Pulcins, I.; Kerluke, K.


The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that to invest in the "front end" of the management process is the best approach to this problem. Preventing human resource problems by optimizing regular staff deployment is more cost-effective than reacting repeatedly to shortages of qualified personnel through casual staffing. The thrust of the analysis is to examine and describe the staffing requirements of various patterns of nurse deployment and to develop a management model for maximizing current staff resources. In addition, this report provides information on ways to enhance the management of nursing resources through the systematic monitoring of personnel retention.
