🔑 The calculation of nursing personnel is an important administrative task.

💡 The calculation is based on factors such as the capacity of the services, the complexity of medical treatments, and the area of care.

📊 Indicators are established to guide the calculation of nursing personnel.

00:02:02 Calculating Nursing Staff: Learn about the main indicators used to determine the number of nursing staff required in different hospital departments.

📋 The video discusses the key indicators for calculating the number of nursing personnel in different hospital services, such as surgery, internal medicine, gynecology, pediatrics, intensive care, and emergencies.

One important indicator is the number of hours of nursing care required for each service, which ranges from 4 hours for surgery to 10 hours for intensive care.

🔄 Another indicator is the calculation of nursing personnel based on shift rotations (morning, afternoon, and night), using percentages to estimate the necessary staffing.

00:03:58 This video discusses the calculation of nursing staff based on different percentages for different services and specialties, highlighting the importance of matching the right proportion of professional and non-professional nurses to the complexity of each service.

📊 There are different indicators to determine the percentage of professional and non-professional nursing staff required for different services.

💡 The proportion of specialized nursing staff varies depending on the complexity of the service, with surgery, internal medicine, gynecology, and obstetrics requiring 60% professional and 40% non-professional staff.

🏥 The specific requirements for different services, such as pediatrics, prematurity, intensive care, emergencies, and surgical units, need to be analyzed and studied separately.

00:05:54 Calculating the staffing requirements for nursing personnel using two formulas based on the number of beds and hours needed for each area or service.

📋 The calculation of nursing staff is determined by two formulas.

Formula 1 involves multiplying hours required with the number of beds in the area to determine the number of nurses needed.

👩‍⚕️ Formula 2 calculates the necessary nursing staff based on hours required and the work shift.

00:07:50 Calculation of nursing staff required based on the number of beds and hours of nursing care needed for a pediatric service.

👩‍⚕️‍ The number of nurses required depends on the specific service and the number of beds.

00:09:48 Estimating the number of nurses required for pediatric service with 20 beds based on previous calculations, dividing the service hours by 8. Rounded up to 13 nurses required.

💡 The video discusses the calculation of nursing staff required for a pediatric service in a hospital with 20 beds.

💡 The formula used to determine the number of nurses needed is dividing the total hours of service by the known hours of the workday.

💡 The distribution of nurses in different shifts is suggested to be 40-30-30 for the morning, afternoon, and night shifts respectively.

00:11:44 Calculating nursing staff distribution based on percentages: 40% for morning shift, 30% for afternoon shift, and 30% for night shift.

📚 Calculating nursing staff based on percentages.

🕒 40% of 13 would correspond to 5 nurses for the morning shift, while 30% would be allocated to the afternoon and night shifts.
