DQ: Select a topic for your Topic 3 Executive Summary assignment. Post your idea and basic thoughts about the topic using the assignment details from Topic 3. You should provide thoughts to your peers about their topics and ideas that may assist them in completing their projects.

On any given schedule we only have staffing for 28 beds, meaning if anyone calls out and we are full we are already down several nurses and pulling our break nurses to take patients as well as pulling from float pool and PCU staff just to fully staff our unit and nurses are left without breaks and are paid overtime. If a unit is fully staffed for 32 patients with a break nurse there will be better staffing ratios, more open beds for new admission, not as much turnover of patients on a unit in one
