N4455 Nursing Leadership and Management 3. Your hospital unit, 3 West, is a 60-bed general medical-surgical unit. Over the past year, the ADC (Ave. Daily Census) was 55 patients. Use the following data on 3 West during the last year to perform these calculations and answer these questions. A. Complete this table to calculate the actual average hours of care required per patient day (HPPD) for the patients in 3 West. Round to the nearest tenth Acuity Mix Average Hours of Care Required Average Daily Census (ADC) Total Hours of Care Per Day I 1.4 8 11.2 II 3.9 21 81.9 III 5.6 19 106.4 IV 8.8 7 61.6 Totals 55 261.1 Hours per patient day (HPPD) 4.7 B. Remember that your established personnel budget for 3 West assumes a HPPD of 6.2. If your calculated HPPD is different, explain the significance of the variance. ( If your calculated HPPD is different than 6.2, you must write more than, “We need more/less nurses.” ) What is the Significance of the variance? If you believe you need more staff, what will be your rationale for making this requires? If you have too much staff, what would your proposal be for bringing your staffing into a better balance? Variance is described as how far a number is in the set from the mean. Since the budget is set at 6.2 and what is needed on this day is 4.7, our unit is over staffed and will need less nurses on the floor. In order to have better balance in staffing is to check and see if another unit is short staff then we will float a nurse to that unit. If no other units are short staffed, then we will call off a nurse. C. What are the implications for the Nurse Manager? As an example, based on your conclusions in Section B, what other observations would you make as you review your total budget and what would you expect to see as a result? (Ex: supply costs; overtime hours, average census of 50 on a 60 bed unit, etc.) The nurse manager will need to review the staffing trends. As the nurse manager I would not change the budget of 6.2 average nurses based on one day. I would have to consider the time of year and past trends. Summer usually has a lower census, while winter we are at capacity. If I
