This has probably been a topic before but can you tell me how you calculate your staffing hours? do you include assistive personnell in that or is it just nursing hours?

We have set staffing every day which unfortunately does not change base on census. Weare a 19 bed hospital with an 8 bed fast track.


1 from 7a-11a

2 from 11a-11p

1 from 11p-7a


1 from 7a-7p for triage

1 from 7p-7a for triage


6 from 7a-11a

8 from 11a-11p

6 from 11p-3a

5 from 3a-7a

Fast Track

2 RNs from 11a-11p (only hours they are open)

The RNs include the charge nurse, who only takes an assignment if we are short and includes the triage nurse.
