The structure and the process for delivering patient care will experience major changes during the next decade. Most hospitals have tried different alternatives, including restructuring, re-engineering, redesign, and the return to patient-focused care. Staffing strategies may successfully move nurses from total patient care to delegated, shared accountability. During their short stays, new parents and their neonates receive streamlined, intensely focused care from cross-trained workers in a patient-focused care environment. Each interaction becomes a meaningful and educational one, with the focal point being the mother and the family.
