Although the hospital is saving $1.75 per hour (note the difference between the standard rate per hour and the actual rate) by employing more assistants relative to the number of senior technicians than other hospitals, this savings is more than offset by other factors. Too much time is being taken in performing lab tests, as indicated by the large unfavourable labour efficiency variance. And, it seems likely that most (or all) of the hospital’s unfavourable quantity variance for plates is traceable to inadequate supervision of assistants in the lab.
