plese help!!anyone use an acuity system that REALLY works?

  1. We have our administrators attention and now we need to show them what we mean. We are looking at different nursing concepts:care pairs, tpc, team nursing. It seems that no matter how we staff we must first have an acuity system that works. Anyone have a model that your facility uses and works? We are a 30 bed med/surg/ortho/onc unit. thanks

    I think they'll work if they're fair and hospitals really use them. Every one I've ever had...ends up being 'adjusted' so staffing by number vs acuity takes place. (sigh) Good luck...hope it is a 'real' acuity system your facility is setting up.
