Abstract

Objective: Nurse workload in intensive care units (ICU) is an important factor that might affect patient outcomes. The Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System-28 (TISS-28) is an instrument to measure nurse workload. The objective of this study was to compare the nurse workload between two different ICUs and evaluate its impact on ICU mortality.
