Abstract

Frequently, education is prime when hospital administration is seeking opportunities to reduce the budget. Our hospital region faced that dilemma. This article discusses how our facility used management engineering to determine the number of education hours for each unit, based on specific negotiated criteria developed by a collaborative group, to answer the question "How many staff can one educator represent?"
