ONA continues to address staffing concerns throughout the state and we'd like you to please provide information to help us in our efforts. Your responses will remain anonymous.

* 1. What are the major staffing concerns in your facility?

* 2. Are you aware of a staffing committee in your facility?

* 3. If you answered yes, do you know who sits on the committee?

* 4. Without listing specific names, could you provide a make-up of the committee itself? I.E. Does the Chief Nursing Officer, Unit Nurse Manager, Charge Nurse, and Staff Nurses sit on the committee?

* 5. How often does the committee meet?

* 6. Are the recommendations made by the staffing committee followed at the unit level?

* 7. Are staff nurses able to constructively contribute to the staffing plans of the facility?

* 8. Do you have mandatory overtime within your facility?

* 9. Would you support a legislative proposal in Ohio to eliminate mandatory overtime?

* 10. Would you support a "preventing nurse fatigue" initiative in Ohio to limit nurses’ work hours to 12 hours in a 24 hour period and 60 hours in a week?

* 11. What would you like ONA to be made aware of in our efforts to improve nurse staffing throughout the state of Ohio?
