Accuity based staffing

  1. We are a 600 bed hospital with 7 ICU's. We are currently redesigning our accuity based staffing model. Our current nurse patient ratio is @;1, at times 1:1. The accuity of our patients is very high. I would appreciate copies of accuity sheets from other hospitals to help with this task. Thank you for your help. email seedee1958@aol.com

    We are a 103 bed hospital with one ICU of 8 beds. I also am interested in seeing a simple and unpadable acuity system. The old acuity system use to list IV, but with todays expectations of managed care, medicare, and medicaid, why would they be in the hospital without one? Your help would be very appreciated.

    We are a Level 1 Trauma center just recovering from "The K" and looking for updated accuity based staffing systems too. If you hear of any or find any links I would appreciated hearing about them. Thanks
