What is patient acuity? Patient Acuity is the measurement of the intensity of nursing care required by a patient.
Why is patient acuity important? Assigning the number of nurses needed per shift based merely on the number of patients may not be in the best interests of patient safety for example patients may range from requiring minimal care on the day they are being discharged to needing a dedicated nurse 24/7 in intensive care.
What is acuity based staffing? Acuity based staffing allocates resources based on patients’ needs, rather than the more traditional method of assigning resources based on patient numbers. With automated acuity based staffing solutions you can be 100% sure that you are making the best possible use of your workforce to ensure patient safety and care by optimising your nursing rosters and assignments with patients’ dependency needs. Acuity based staffing allows you to achieve quality patient outcomes, more efficient employee scheduling, reduced costs and increased employee satisfaction and retention.
