1. Calculate the total nursing costs for each patient category.
2. Patient days are used to calculate output. Calculate the nursing cost per patient day for each type of patient, assuming that the normal patient category uses 8,000 patient days and the intensive patient category uses 6,400 patient days. Your answers should be rounded to the nearest cent.
$ per patient day is standard.
Intensive care $ per patient day
3. Conceptual Link: The surgical ward supervisor has suggested that patient days are the only determinant needed to assign nursing costs to each type of patient. Using this method, compute the charge per patient day. Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a cent.
