1. Calculate the total nursing expenditures associated with each patient group.
2. Patient days are used to quantify 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 needs 6,400 patient days. Your answers should be rounded to the closest penny.
Intensive care costs $ per patient per day.
3. Conceptual Connection: The surgical ward supervisor has proposed that patient days be the only criterion for allocating nursing charges to each patient type. Using this method, calculate the price per patient day. Your answer should be rounded to the nearest tenth of a cent.
