About "Staffing Methodologies and Standards for Health Care Environmental Services" ePub
The Association for the Health Care Environment (AHE) of the American Hospital Association has produced the first health care-driven environmental services staffing standards in the field. The staffing methodology includes metrics derived from current hospital staffing averages in the field with direction from environmental services staffing experts.
The final staffing model is comprised of data from health care facility surveys, statistical analysis and additional expert review. The staffing numbers identified represent the most accurate analyses for environmental services in a hospital or health care setting. These analyses and models are based on achieving quality outcomes for patients, visitors, and staff safety.
