Washington's Hospital Staffing Surveys – 2001, 2002, 2003-4, 2005


Description:

With the Washington State Hospital Association, the UW CHWS has surveyed acute care hospitals in Washington State in 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2005 to determine employment, contracting, and vacancy rates for 21 occupational categories, level of difficulty recruiting those staff, and level of difficulty credentialing physicians. Responses were analyzed at the level of state, hospital size, and workforce development area. The 2001 survey asked more detailed questions about the hospital nurse workforce; the 2002 and later surveys included questions about the hospital physician workforce. These studies were funded by HRSA’s National Center for Health Workforce Analysis (including through a Congressional Appropriation to the UW CHWS) and by the Health Work Force Institute of the Washington State Hospital Association.
