Staffing for Patients in the Perioperative Setting Fourth Edition

Author - AfPP. ISBN - 978-1-904290-35-3.

Maintaining adequate staffing ratios is crucial for supporting quality care, patient safety and staff welfare within the perioperative setting. ‘Staffing for Patients in the Perioperative Setting’ helps organisations to identify the right people with the right skills in the right place and the right time.

Updated for 2022, this practical guide outlines the recommendations and formula for a staffing model which accurately calculates the required staffing levels for safe practice within your environment. It is designed for use in both the NHS and independent sector.

This is an invaluable tool for managers in the perioperative setting and provides clear guidance for calculating safe staffing establishments.

Topics include:

  • Workforce issues and demographics
  • Skill mix and competency issues
  • Professional accountability
  • AfPP’s recommended formula for calculating staffing establishment
  • Guidance for effective risk management
  • Staffing policy template

Using the tools, formula and staffing policy template provided in this publication, organisations can conduct their own staffing assessment. Considering your individual circumstances, activity and patient care requirements, this supports an evidence-based review of your current staff numbers and budgets.

With increasing surgical backlogs and staff shortages in recent years, giving theatre departments the support they need to appropriately speak up about concerns regarding staff numbers and competencies is more important than ever.

The formula included in this publication provides a template and calculation guide for the numbers of staff required which, when completed accurately and comprehensively, gives a true reflection of whole time equivalent (WTE) staffing required for your environments. This publication is a guideline but should be viewed as the essential benchmark for perioperative staffing and associated budget for staff resources as the driver, not starting with a budget and then adapting staffing to fit.
