Hello,That bean counter likes CRNAs.
Actually, the main reason facilities get attracted to a medically directed (1:3 or 1:4 ratio) is just the reason stated in the presentation. Staffing costs per anesthesia location are lower. This helps the administrator if he has lower revenue per room due to a poor payor mix or low relative utilization.That bean counter likes CRNAs. He makes more money out of it and the liability goes to the surgeons.
What else is there to say?
