*Hiring professional nurse instead of the adjusting the nursing hours and mandatory overtime consequently leading to a reduction in the ratio of nurses to patients and reduction nursing workload and develop quality patient care. According to Allen (2013), “the low ratio of nurses to the patient improves the quality of patient care through quantifiable outcomes.”
*Using experience RNs to avoid medical error and injuries and enhance the workflow.
*Increasing nursing support and determine the level of staff for the appropriate unit in each shift
