The OuchGoWay Canadian Hernia Clinic is a single condition medical facility that performs hernia surgeries. Some surgeries are for single hernias and others are for double hernias. (If you don’t know what a hernia is, consider yourself lucky.) On average one third of the patients checking in each day have double hernias. These patients generally stay for 2.6 nights – twice as long as the average patient with a single hernia.
a)On an average day 25 patients check in. On average, how many patients of each type are in the clinic on a given day?
b) How many times per month does the clinic turn over its inventory of patients (assume it operates 7 days per week and has 30 days in a month).
c) The cost of the actual procedure is fully covered by the Government, but the patient pays for the room. The average double hernia patient pays a rate of $250 per day and single hernia patients pay an average of $210 per day. What is the average revenue the clinic receives per day per occupied room?
