Ian, RN, MBA, the DON of St. Luke’s Hospital, needs to compute the staffing requirements to fill an Acute Care Unit for Older Adults. Since this is a residential (inpatient) unit, it is required to have staff 24-hours per day, 7-days per week and 365 days per year. The DON knows the State requirements and is running 8-hour shifts with full-time staff working a total of 40 hours per week. He knows that he needs three (3) RNs on each of Shifts 1 and 2 and one (1) RN on Shift 3. He needs six (6) LPNs on the day (Shift 1) and six (6) LPNs on the evening shift (Shift 2), with three (3) LPNs on Night shift (Shift 3). Twelve (12) CNAs are needed to help patients both in the morning and evening and one (1) CNA is needed to assist at Night. Only one (1) Clerical Staff is needed (Monday – Friday) for the Day Shift and not on any other shift. The Clerical position is a 40-hour position and does not require week-end coverage. One (1) Nursing Supervisor is required to be assigned to each shift. post in excel format so I can edit each cell
