    Hi Mindy-

    How are you obtaining those metrics?

    2.4 worked nursing hours per patient visit?

    Do you monitor productivity?

    We use a staffing metric in our ambulatory (combined with our infusion clinic).

    We staff 2.4 worked nursing hours per patient visit.

    This metric includes clinic nurses, infusion nurses, phone triage nurses, and charge nurses.

    We have not been able to benchmark our metric against other locations and would be very interested in partnering to develop benchmarks


    Hope this helps.
