I recently received a call from Simon Miranda, chief of biomedical engineering services at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. He wanted to know if there was any definitive information on how to determine an individual’s workload in the industry.
He has a method but is open to ideas. 24×7’s current poll asks a related question: In determining the minimal staffing level required to run an effective biomedical engineering program, is the unit of service (UOS) based on inventory or patient adjusted discharged?
At this point, 89.8% have said inventory, but how do you determine this? Do you look at the complexity of the device? The equipment’s age? We hope you’ll comment on the blog and help answer Simon’s question: How do you determine an individual’s workload in the industry? Thanks!
