Workforce Efficiency: Acuity-Based Staffing for Productivity

Register Now

Nursing productivity targets are not “one size fits all” and targets must be flexible enough to account for variations in patient acuity. In a post-COVID-19 world, and with nationwide staffing shortages and high acuity patients, it is even more important to know how to staff appropriately. The common challenge is asking leaders to engage their staff to utilize an acuity-based staffing tool when they often don’t really want to use one.

Join us to hear Workforce Efficiency leaders share how to best utilize staffing matrixes and shift calculators to predict staffing needs for your unity based on acuity. We will also review how to use bed huddle tools to float staff across the house as needed to maximize labor resources.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to align staffing with acuity in your nursing units
  • Understand benchmarking and how to set appropriate productivity goals
  • Discover how to adjust for acuity variations within a nursing unit as well as achieving buy-in from staff

Who Should Attend:

  • Hospital Executives
  • Nursing Unit Managers
  • Productivity Management Staff
