The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions supports the abolishment of hallway nursing. As members of the Quality Worklife – Quality Healthcare Collaborative (QWQHC), we reject the practice of hallway nursing because it contradicts the indicator of a healthy workplace defined as:
A work setting that takes a strategic and comprehensive approach to providing the physical, cultural, psychosocial and work/job design conditions that maximize health and well-being of health care providers, quality of patient outcomes, and organizational performance.
