acquity tool? no, we have the same staff (or less)

regardless of acuity.

Hello "ltc". I am also from Rochester and work in long term care. No, we do not use an acuity tool to base staffing needs. I wish we did. But then again......that would make too much sense now, wouldn't it!?!!! I have tried to talk the 'powers that be' into doing something like that, but so far to no avail. However, I was able to get them to add more nursing hours on the day and evening shifts (the floor I manage has 35 beds. 20 are rehab and 15 are LTC). That was a major triumph for me!!

:)
