Hi Everyone...kinda new here on allnurses... just hoping to gain some insight as to how you all staff your units. We have had unusual fluctuations in both census and acuity and are either overstaffed for low census (and RNs get pulled or called off) or understaffed for high census (to prevent getting pulled or called off). What are some strategies your unit uses to account for this?
Thanks for your input!
