Subject:       Survey regarding the current care situation in neonatal and paediatric intensive care units

 

Request:

Recently, you participated in my survey regarding the current staffing situation across European Children’s Hospitals. Thank you very much for your help!

At the moment I am processing the data statistically and presumably some questions were misunderstood.

I am very sorry and hope not to bother you but I would highly value if you could fill out the following questions one more time with the help of my clarifications.

 

 

6 Do you use central screen monitoring on your non-specific care wards?

[ ] Yes

[ ] No

 

 

9 How many nurses are scheduled in your intensive care unit according to the ward design? (This question aims to find out the total number of workplaces for nurses at your ward and not the number of nurses per

shift.) [   ]

 

 

10 How many neonatal patients are under the care of a single nurse at any one point ? (I know that it depends on the level of care but I would appreciate if you could give an average number.)

 

intended based on ward design: [   ]

12 How many doctors work at your intensive care unit? This question aims to find out the total number of doctors that work at your ward and not the number of doctors per shift.
