Assume that you are the nursing administrator for a medical group that expects a severe outbreak of flu this winter. You hire additional staff to treat patients and administer shots. Your special project budget was for 1,000 hours of part-time nurses’ services at $ 40 per hour, for a total cost of $ 40,000. It was expected that these nurses would treat 2,000 patients. After the flu season was over, it turned out that the total spent on part-time nurses was $ 50,000. The nurses worked 1,200 hours and 2,600 patients were treated. Calculate the variances. Was the overall result favorable or unfavorable?
