Abstract: Following the Northern Territory Coronial Inquest [2008] NTMC 049 the Minister for Health announced that the “Nursing Hours per Patient Day” (NHPPD), nursing workload management tool would be introduced throughout hospitals in the Northern Territory. The initial focus was to be on Ward 4A and other wards that have been staffing to a deficit. The implementation is to occur within current resources, but will identify if and where additional nursing staff are required. The Contract specifies that the Consultant is to provide the Minister for Health with: • An initial and six month report on the implementation of the NHPPD management tool for nursing staffing levels in the five Northern Territory acute care hospitals highlighting structural, process and outcome achievements and issues; • A review and verification of the monthly Department of Health and Families (DHF) NHPPD data provided by the Project Officer, by visiting individual hospitals, wards and departments with feedback from nurse managers and staff; and • Reports that consider both staff and patient outcome (performance) measures.
