Question description


You are the nursing administrator for a medical group that expects a severe outbreak of the flu this winter.  You hire additional staff to treat the patients and administer shots.  Your special project budget was for 1,000 hours of part-time nurses’ services at $40 per hour, for a total cost of $40,000.  It was expected that these nurses would administer 400 flu shots and treat 1,600 flu patients.  The medical group typically charges $50 for a flu shot and $80 for treating a flu patient. Actually, the group had 1,200 patients who received the flu shot and 1,400 who had the flu and received treatment.  On average, it was able to collect $55 per flu shot and $70 per flu patient.  

Compute the volume, mix, and price revenue variances.  How did things turn out for the group considering just revenues?  How did they turn out from a profit perspective? Use either the approach from chapter 8 or from Appendix 8-A to solve.  Clearly label the calculations of the required variances using Excel.  Use formulas to calculate the three variances and format the cells to insert a comma if there is more than three numbers and round to the nearest whole number.  Explain the meaning of the variances in a two page Word document.
