Abstract:

Part 2 Critical Care Patient Classification Subsystem addresses the development and testing of a multidimensional factor-evaluation designed patient classification system for critical care. The critical care patient classification subsystem has been developed and tested through four years of rigorous field research. This quantitative subsystem measures direct nursing care activities and determines the best mix by skill level of care providers for critical care. The critical care patient classification subsystem utilizes the factor-evaluation design, is multidimensional, and is designed for automated or manual implementation. Extensive validity and reliability studies demonstrate that the critical care patient classification subsystem is valid and reliable.
