- Staff-To-Patient Ratio: Indicates the use and capacity of staff resources, which can affect the quality of patient care.
- Bed or Room Turnover: Will demonstrate how fast patients are moving in and out of the facility. This affects the efficiency of the facility and should be considered when looking at patient satisfaction. We might want to consider tying this one closely with re-admittance rates to make sure that we are not letting people leave the facility who are not well.

This will be measured by satisfaction, and sometimes measured by the number of documented communication activities.
