Annual Session of the American Association for the surgery of Trauma. 49. Chicago IL (USA), 1989-10-05.
The University of California, Davis, Medical Center introduced the use of nurse practitioners (NPs) to the trauma service in fiscal year 1986-87 to alleviate the increasing burdens placed on the surgical housestaff in their attempt to accommodate the rising patient volume and acuity.
The use of NPs was associated with a decrease in average length of stay for the seriously injured patients from 8.10 to 7.05 days while the length of stay for other patients in the hospital remained unchanged.
Documentation of quality of care in the medical record increased substantially.
