DNS Fundamentals: Staffing Tool

The Staffing Tool can help the DNS determine how many staff members are needed in a 24-hour period and per shift according to the budget. It can also help calculate what the actual direct care PPD for each staff type currently being utilized is and compare it to the budgeted PPD to determine if the nursing department is running above budget or below budget. This tool can also assist the DNS in comparing the facility’s actual direct care PPD to staffing requirements to ensure compliance. A printable daily posting sheet is included that the DNS can post for public viewing to maintain compliance with CMS requirements in F732.
