Hi all. I am on the nursing care committee at my hospital and we have been tasked with designing an acuity based staffing system appropriate for the whole hospital (we are very small, with med surg, tele, sicu, cicu and l&d floors). I have been researching but have not been able to find a single useful tool or method used by any hospital that assigns staffing based on acuity. Do any of you have a model you would mind sharing or could anyone point me toward a research article or something that would be of assistance? I would greatly appreciate anything provided!
