Case Study:

You are the manager of an intensive care unit. Today is April 1st, and the fiscal year began on July 1st. You work with a variable budget and have the opportunity to make changes to the current budget based on variance. You cannot go over the total budgeted amount assigned to you. Your budget is presented below.

Several factors that you must consider include:

1 A changing staffing pattern as a result of high acuity on your unit. Your care managers have requested permanent staff lines.

2 The risk manager wants you to purchase new "smart pumps." These are IV pumps that calculate and manage high risk medications in order to meet JCAHO safety standards. Right now there is a special price of $3, 000.00/per pump. The risk manager thinks 3 pumps is a good start.

3 Your prevalence rate of pressure ulcers is rising on the unit, wound care supplies are part of the unit supplies budget.

4 Three of your best nurses want to attend a conference on high risk medications out of state in September. The registration fee is $300.00, and if you register now, the three can attend for $200.00 each. Projected travel costs are $500.00 each.
