China’s Growing Reliance on Lower-Paid Contract Nurses May Compromise Patient Care, New Research Suggests

Columbia University School of Nursing

Economic and health system reforms in China in recent decades have dramatically reduced the number of traditional hospital nursing jobs, known as “bianzhi” or “iron rice bowl” positions, which are guaranteed for life. Instead, more than half of nursing posts in many Chinese hospitals are now filled with contract-based nurses who do the same work as “bianzhi” for lower pay, fewer benefits and limited job security. A new study from Columbia University School of Nursing, published in the journal Human Resources for Health, found significantly higher levels of compensation-related dissatisfaction among contract nurses than their “bianzhi” peers. Hospitals with a disproportionate number of contract nurses also had significantly higher levels of patient dissatisfaction, which prior research has linked to lower quality care and worse outcomes.
