Metropolis health system uses a basic work week of 40

Metropolis health system uses a basic work week of 40 hrs throughout the system,. thus, one-full time employee works 40 hrs per week. MHS also uses a standard 24 hr scheduling system of three 8/hr shifts. The director of nursing needs to compute the staffing requirements to fill the operating room positions. Since MHS is a trauma center the OR is staffed 24/hrs a day, 7 days a week. at present, staffing is identical for all seven days of the week, although the director of nursing is questioning the efficiency of this method.
