A Systematic Review of Research Evidence on 24-Hour Registered Nurse Availability in Long- term Care

Staff in LTC facilities include licensed nursing staff: registered nurses (RNs) registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs), and licensed practical nurses (LPNs), as well as unregulated nurse/care aides.

RN/RPNs and LPNs are trained to assess residents and provide nursing care to promote health and prevent illness.

The work presented in this report includes:
  • a review of existing nurse staffing regulations relating to 24-hour nurse staffing in LTC
  • facilities
  • literature review relating to the 24-hour RN cover question
  • the review of broader nurse staffing literature
