An acuity system identifies the amount of nursing care needed for each patient on a unit based on the level of intensity, nursing care and tasks needed for each patient. The system allocates resources based on patients needs, not ing to raw patient numbers.

The patient acuity tool Each patient is scored on a 1-to-4 scale (1, stable patient; 2, moderate-risk patient; 3, complex patient; 4, high-risk patient) based on the clinical patient characteristics and the care involved (workload.)
The average acuity level is the sum the value of each data point divided by the total number of data points. The sum of each patients acuity level (whether from a completed assessment or the default acuity level) at the report run time divided by the number of patients in the location.
patients who need 2 or more resources are classified acuity 3 when a high-risk situation is not present. An acuity rating of 3 is assigned to more than 50% of ED visits. Within the cohort of acuity 3 patients are chief complaints and clinical determinations that reflect a wide variation of clinical presentations.
