Looking for some help...
As I've noted before, we are a Med surg unit, one floor hospital so we operate really as a PCU. Due to reconstruction of our nursing home, we've also got a few skilled patients, and of course admin ( and by that, I mean HR specifically, don't ask how they are involved with this!) are screaming about us being over staffed. I've NEVER been given a HPPD #, only a FTE # which I've exceeded maybe 2 in 3 years.
I am desperately searching for recent patient classifcation systems to utilze as we all know it's acuity, not #'s. It is nothing for us to have 4 in the am, 2 that noc, 6 the next am, and the day after that 14...with admits/discharges/transfers/ outpatient procedures....you get the picture.
If anyone can help I am so grateful ahead of time!!!!!
