Intensive Care Unit Discussion
You are the manager of an intensive care unit (ICU). Many of the nurses have approached you requesting 12-hour shifts. Other nurses have approached you stating they will transfer out of the unit if 12-hour shifts are implemented.
You are exploring the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of using both 8-hour and 12-hour shifts so that staff could select which type of scheduling they wanted. Would this create a scheduling nightmare? Would you allow staff to choose freely between 8- and 12- hour shifts? What problems may result if allowed?
