For this assignment, please review Chapter 10 in the course textbook, Health Care Finance: Basic Tools

for the Nonfinancial Managers, 5th edition. The example outlined on pages 104 and 105 will clarify these
calculations.

Assignment:
Section 1 consists of calculating the staffing for Dr. Smith and Browns’ two offices: Spruce Street office
and the Birch Street Office.
Section 2 consists of converting the net paid days to the annualized factor.
Section 3 asks you to discuss the regulatory requirements about staffing and correlate staffing to cost.
Instructions:
As the office manager for Dr. Smith and Brown’s two offices, you are responsible for the developing the
yearly budget. To identify the cost related to staffing, you are tasked with annualizing the staff for both
offices. In addition, you must convert the employee’s net paid days worked to a factor.
Complete Section 1 of the table provided by entering the results of your calculations for each category. It
is important to understand that a business year is divided into quarters. Therefore, when calculating a
business year, you must divide the year into 52 weeks, which creates 13 months of 28 days, or 4 weeks.
This translates into 4 quarters of 91 days, as there are 364 days in a business year.
Dr. Smith and Brown’s Practice Information:
Both offices are open 7 days a week, which requires staffing for each of the 7 days for 8 hours a day. Dr.
Smith and Brown offer the following benefits to their full-time employees. The benefits are applied
according to the employee’s length of service. All employees at the Spruce Street office have been
employed for more than 3 years. All employees at the Birch Street office have been employed for at least
1 year, but less than 3.
