Abstract

Objective: Nursing workload affects patient outcomes in intensive care units (ICUs). The effective use of resources requires planning of nursing workload. We aimed to determine nursing workload, the required number of nurses in ICUs, and differences in nursing workload among ICUs using Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System-28 (TISS-28).
