Optimize Your Staffing Levels to Meet Workload Volume

Right-size Staffing Levels to Meet Workload Volumes

Aligning staffing levels to patient care needs requires a precise balance of forecasted workloads and available staff. Staffing up may impact morale when staff are sent home, not working at full capacity, or getting fewer hours. Optimizing scheduling practices can lead to a reduction in overtime or need for agency supplemental staffing.

Press Ganey Clinical Improvement Consulting experts have experience at hundreds of health systems nationwide improving staffing level processes. We evaluate all areas and processes that support staffing levels and scheduling to develop a roadmap and implement a customized solution that address staffing level issues.

Using a proven approach, we assist hospitals with aligning staffing patterns to volume, including the following:
  • Aligning perioperative services staff hours to procedure scheduled start time and post-procedure patient flow
  • Staggering shifts in the inpatient departments to allow for work intensity increase during peak admission and discharge times
  • Aligning ancillary department staff on/off shift based on workload type and volume requirements
