During periods when a large number of patients are admitted to a hospital, more qualified nurses are hired and more money is spent on nurse training than when the number of patients in a hospital is low. Thus, the average number of mistakes made by nurses should be lower during periods when there is a large number of patients in a hospital than when there is a small number of patients in a hospital and less money is available to hire qualified nurses and provide training to all nurses.

Which of the following, if true about a hospital during a period in which a large number of patients are admitted, casts the most serious doubt on the conclusion drawn above?

  • A Its nurses demand higher wages than they do at other times.
  • B Its nurses have less time to spend with each patient than they have at other times.
  • C Its staff members are less likely to lose their jobs then they are at other times.
  • D Its management provides opportunities for patients to provide feedback about their nurses.
  • E Its training program for nurses is very rigorous.
