#### Decide how many hours during the week the department must be staffed to fully operate.

HEALTHCARE FINANCE: HLTH420 – 1304A – 01 GROUP PROJECT UNIT 4 BAKER AND BAKER; CHAPTERS 13-16

For the project we must decide on what department we will be discussing… Any ideas? My suggestion is nursing department In a nursing home of two floors and 40 beds on each floor…

Your team of employees and you are working on a big project for the hospital’s chief financial officer (CFO). Together, you will develop a system to justify the full-time employees of the laboratory department.
• Decide how many hours during the week the department must be staffed to fully operate.
• Calculate, using one of the FTE formulas to justify, how many full-time employees are necessary. Assume that the full-time employees will work five 8-hour shifts. The minimum amount of employees per shift is: 1 pathologist, 2 laboratory technologists, and 1 front office person.
• Provide details as to the services the laboratory offers and the revenue it can generate for the hospital to help the CFO put this information into perspective.
• Provide a cost analysis of the day-to-day operation expenses of the department.
• Analyze cost using the cost classifications of direct versus indirect and flexible/variable/semivariable.
Combine the information into a PowerPoint slide presentation to present to the hospital CFO. Make the slides informational and also visually appealing. For more information on creating PowerPoint Presentations, please visit the PowerPoint Lab.
Individual Portion:
Group Portion:
Once each group member has completed his or her own individual portion, share information and begin analyzing the information. Come together as a group to address the following questions listed in the project details:
• Decide how many hours during the week the department must be staffed to fully operate.
• Calculate, using one of the FTE formulas to justify, how many full-time employees are necessary.
• Provide details as to the services this department offers and the revenue it can generate for the hospital.
• Provide a cost analysis of the day-to-day operation expenses of the department. Analyze cost using the cost classifications of direct versus indirect and flexible/variable/semivariable.
Remember that this is a collaborative effort in which every group member should have input into the final project. The project should be formatted as a PowerPoint presentation of 5–10 slides in length
