As your unit census changes do you struggle to know if you are staffed appropriately and most efficiently? The delicate balance of being properly staffed to state or organization ratios and lowering your cost of care is difficult to attain. Being overstaffed really drives your cost of care through the roof, but being understaffed puts patient care and compliance at risk. So what are the "right staffing" levels for your unit given the changing census?
ShiftHound can help you hit the target every day given any census with its Hours Per Patient Day (HPPD) automated scheduling. No longer will you guess at what is the right staffing level mix for a unit, you will know when you are over and understaffed, at a glance.
