Special COVID-19 Edition PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Participation

Data Collection for the Special COVID-19 Edition PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Report is NOW open, and we invite you to participate.

COVID-19 has had such a great impact on our healthcare organizations that we want to make our 2022 published report a Special COVID-19 Edition.  This Special COVID-19 Edition PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Report© will compare the 2020 hours of care, during the height of COVID-19, to the 2021 hours of care, as COVID-19 has had more ebb and flow of impacts.  LMI is committed to providing relevant and current data to support resource planning and workforce management.

What is required from the participating organizations?

We request your unit specific information for the following two-(2) time periods:

  • January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020
  • January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021

We will be accepting data for both years through February 15, 2022.

Please include all Nursing and Non-Nursing units; All units accepted!

Why Should Your Unit(s) Participate?

  • Measure the impact of COVID-19 and post COVID-19 changes to your hours of care compared to 2019 Pre-COVID-19.
  • Do you want unit specific Hours Per Unit of Service (HPPD, Hrs./Delivery, etc.) comparisons by hospital type (teaching, community, rural)?
  • Do you want unit specific caregiver to patient ratio comparisons by hospital type?
  • Do you want unit specific benchmark comparisons to build a business case to help you tell your story?

Cost to participate in this Special COVID-19 Edition PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Report©

The participation fee for this 2-year comparison report is $250 per facility location ($500 value).  Upon publication of the Special COVID-19 Edition PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Report©, each participating organization will be provided an individual electronic downloadable file.

*Contact us for multi-site participation discounts.

How is the data collected?

Each participating organization will be provided with an Excel/CSV document to complete their data collection for each year. Once the data collection is complete for each year, the Excel/CSV document will be sent back to LMI to import into its software.  By utilizing the Excel/CSV document and allowing us to import your data we hope to reduce your time spent collecting and submitting the needed information.

We are excited to be able to provide a comparative report of how the hospitals across the nation were impacted and how the units are recovering from the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Report© is an independent voluntary national survey. We have worked to ensure the accuracy of the reported data is consistent with the published glossary of terms and formulas so that LMI’s results are the earliest indicator of changes in the hours of care and workforce management data you are challenged to meet. The PSS™ Annual Survey of Hours Report© is unencumbered from the predefined limits of third-party productivity companies or products.
