Abstract:

The cost of health care has been spiraling for years, and the pressures to increase efficiency are becoming greater. This study presents several models capable of evaluating and relating hospital budgets to workloads. Specifically, we have developed models for forecasting nursing salary expenses in the OBGYN ward, the MedicalSurgical ward, and for total nursing salary expenses. These models can be used for budgeting, measuring efficiency, and controlling nursing salary expense. The methodology can be applied to other wards within the hospital for monthly and yearly nursing salary predictions. Author
