Abstract

Techniques were developed based on nursing staff input to improve floating at a 500-bed trauma center when the practice was expanded to include units that were previously closed. Written fact sheets were prepared for each unit, and a buddy system was implemented for all floats. A study was conducted to identify the effects of these and other interventions designed to improve nurses' experience of floating.
