Massachusetts Hospital Association website presents each hospital’s unit-by-unit staffing plans budgeted for 2020, by shift, and actual staffing for fiscal year 2019 (and prior years). First in the country to voluntarily post nurse-to-patient staffing ratios. May be difficult for consumers to interpret to compare MA hospital performance, especially with all the different types of inpatient units. In addition, the pandemic will severely affect staffing in both 2020 and 2021. The Emergency Department information also includes specialties such as Chest Pain Center and Stroke Center, and average daily number of ER visits.
