How to staff the ER

                 
Can we hire a 7th doctor?
NO
Are we able to cover the overnight shifts and provide adequate patient care with the people we have?
NO
Would it help if we no longer care for the other services' cases? Since the ER caseload is down, being responsible only for our cases may allow more rest time at night.
NO
Replace 2 doctors with doctors who want to do overnights. If we do this, we should then try to place people in "standard" shifts to minimize the swing shifts.
 

YES

Hire a 7th doctor for Mon-Thurs overnights. This leaves 12 overnight shifts to cover (Fri-Sun each week)
Create new permanent schedule with minimal "swing" shifts
Each service is now responsible for their own cases on nights/weekends. ER now creates new permanent schedule with minimal "swing" shifts
