  • Objective : Health service managers around the world are faced with increasing challenge in terms of resources to respond to the populations demand. Objective of this project was to state the difference between required and current staff in OBG OPD and ward for different staff categories like Nurses, Ward in-charge, PCC and housekeeping staff Furthermore, the project involved World Health Organization Method called Workload Indicators of Staffing Needs (WISN) for calculating the required number of staff based on workload indicators.
    The Women’s Health Centre at Manipal Hospitals addresses all kinds of issues related to puberty, menstruation, contraception, reproductive disorders, pregnancy, hormonal & thyroid issues and menopause. With the availability of other super specialty units under the same roof, Manipal Hospitals provides all round comprehensive care for related issues such as infertility, neonatal care, depression, osteoporosis, breast cancer etc.
    From the shift analysis it was found that 40% outpatient flow was handled by 3 PCC i.e. 41% of time of OPD timing there were 3 PCC which was more or less balanced. During the peak hours of outpatient flow (43%) there were only 2 PCC so 1 PCC is short during that time while during the evening time only 17% outpatient flow is there so it is very well manageable by 1 PCC.
    WISN ratio couldn’t be calculated for staff nurses because there was no fixed number of nurses appointed per shift. Nurses were numbered for each shift based on the inpatient flow. The calculated required no of staff nurses represents minimum number of nurse to be present based on the workload projection calculation
    There is some concerned shortage of staff in OBG Ward which needs to be looked upon. This is majorly due to the fact that the ward is not completely functional because few rooms are still under repair. The OBG OPD is more balanced for manpower requirements. There is still a shortage of 1 PCC during peak outpatient flow
