The report revealed that, “the typical work environment of nurses is characterized by many serious threats to patient safety.” To counter these threats and reduce health care errors in hospitals and other settings where nurses care for patients, the 2004 report recommended fundamental transformation in the work environment of nurses—that is, changes to how the workforce is deployed, to how 
work processes are designed, and to the leadership, management, and culture of health care organizations.

#OJNI  has been acquired by +HIMSS. Starting with the February 2014 issue the Journal can be found at a new website. 

OJNI is a free, international, peer reviewed publication that is published quarterly and supports all functional areas of nursing informatics. OJNI was launched in 1996, with readership spanning over 49 countries.

If you are like me and look forward to every issue, please make a note of this change.
