250 patients in primary hospital

* 2.1 Categorize the patients according to levels of care needed

250 (pts) x .70 = 175 patient needing minimal care

250 (pts) x .25 = 62.5 patient needing moderate care

250 (pts) x .05 = 12.5 patient needing intensive care

250

* 2.2 Find the # of NCH needed by the patients and each level of care per day

175 pts x 1.5 NCH needed at Level I = 262.5 NCH/day

62.5 pts x 3 NCH needed at Level II = 187.5 NCH/day

12.5 pts x 4 NCH needed at Level III = 50 NCH/day

500 NCH/day

* 2.3 Find the total NCH needed by 250 patients

500 x 365 (days/year) = 182500 NCH/year

* 2.4 Find the actual working hours rendered by each nursing care personnel per year

8 (hrs/day) x 213 (working days/year) = 1,704 (working hours/year)

* 2.5 Find the total # of nursing personnel needed

a. Total NCH/year = 182500

Working hrs/yr = 1,704

= 107

b. Relief x Total Nsg personnel = 107 x 0.15 = 16

c. Total Nursing Personnel needed 107 + 16 = 123

* 2.6 Categorize to professional and non professional personnel

5:45

123 x .05 = 6 professional nursing

123 x .45 = 55 nursing attendants

* 2.7 Distribute by shifts

6 x .45 = 3 nurses on AM shift

6 x .37 = 2 nurses on PM shift

6 x .18 = 1 nurses on night shift

TOTAL = 6 Nurses

123 x .45 = 55 Nursing attendants on AM shift

123 x .37 = 46 Nursing attendants on PM shift

123 x .18 = 22 nursing attendants on night shift

TOTAL = 123 Nursing Attendants
