Current issue that we are facing is capacity within the hospital. Our system is at 105% capacity which means severe delays in the emergency department. One limiting factor is the FTE requirement and time it takes to have a bed/floor cleaned to accept patients. Environmental Services (EVS), has an FTE budget of 149 employees. The shifts and FTE’s are as follows; Days = 84 (7a-3p), mid shift = 52 (3p-11p), and nights = 13 (11p-7a). We have a vacancy rate of 14% which we can’t seem to overcome, and maintain 10% on disability. At shift change it takes approximately 1.5hrs to restock cart prior to cleaning which increases delays. Each clinical floor takes approximately 5 hours to clean and we have 8 clinical floors. In addition we have 4 critical care floors, and 2 separate OR’s containing 27 rooms. A separate but attached facility with 24 procedural rooms and 60 patient rooms. Best practice for bed turnover is 60min. Our current rate is 116min. In addition to the floors that need to be cleaned, we have an average of 170 patient rooms requiring to be cleaned daily. This excludes the OR and procedure rooms. Out of the 170, 80% of beds become dirty between 1p-8p.
