I saw something from Cincinnati Children’s …they had an acuity tool that they used on EPIC, would be interested in that information as well. Does anyone from there have that info that you did, it was a poster that was completed.

At the townhall meeting at conference we discussed that most inpatient wards use a 1:3 or 1:4 ratio. Does anyone have a staffing policy or inpatient acuity tool for their inpatient that they are willing to share?
Our program moved to a facility that did not previously have inpatient pediatrics, and we are writing policy. We don’t want to recreate the wheel, but need EBP to support our new program and decisions.
