Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore whether Magnet hospitals had better nursing-sensitive outcomes than non-Magnet hospitals. Eighty Magnet hospitals were identified in the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project databases and matched with 80 non-Magnet hospitals on 12 hospital characteristics. Comparative analysis demonstrated no significant differences for risk-adjusted rates for pressure ulcers and failure to rescue. Future investigation should examine what clinical benefits might exist that distinguish Magnet from non-Magnet hospitals.
