Due to economic situations, our hospital is cuting an already micro-team down to an unsafe level. We are going to fight this as best as we can. I have heard of time in motion studies and recommended times alloted to each vascular access procedure and infusion that nurses perform. Does anyone out there have info on this?
Our PICC manufacturer has been helping as best as they can with this matter. Is there anyone out there that for a small fee could look at the first six months of the year numbers and report what the number of FTEs would be a minimum number? It would be helpful if this did not come from a manufacturer as hospital administration is not trusting their advice.
Please contact me directly about specific help.
