Case—Shouldice Hospital—A Cut Above (p. 115)

In a three-page paper, answer the following.

  • How well does the hospital currently utilize its beds?
  • Develop a similar table to show the effects of adding operations on Saturday. (Assume that 30 operations would still be performed each day.) How would you affect the utilization of the bed capacity? Is this capacity sufficient for the additional patients?
  • Now look at the effect of increasing the number of beds by 50%. How many operations could the hospital perform per day before running out of bed capacity? (Assume operations are performed 5 days per week, with the same number performed on each day.) How well will the new resources be utilized relative to the current operation? Could the hospital really perform that many operations? Why? (Hint: look at the capacity of the 12 surgeons and the five operating rooms.)
