The Consequences of Healthcare Staffing Shortages (Video)

America is facing a healthcare staffing crisis. With an aging population and an increase in chronic conditions, the demand for healthcare professionals will only continue to grow.


This video takes a look at the consequences of this staffing shortage. One significant impact is that patients will not promptly receive the necessary care. In addition, the quality of care will suffer as overworked staff members make mistakes. There will also be an increased risk of hospital-acquired infections as well-staffed hospitals cannot provide adequate cleaning and disinfection. The lack of staff will also lead to increased emergency room wait times and extended hospital stays. 


Ultimately, the healthcare staffing shortage will profoundly impact patient care in the United States.
