Question 2

Breakeven Point= Fixed Cost/Contribution Margin

Fixed Cost Bed capacity Because I'm assuming our Annual Patient Days is 20,000 ($6,000,000/$300), I went with the first option in the table (up to 21,900), so 20 Aides, 10 Nurses, and 4 Supervising Nurses Aides Nurses Supervising Nurses TOTAL

Fixed Cost Contribution Margin= Sales - Variable Cost

Variable Cost I don't believe we can just take a total variable cost, but rather we need to break it by number of patient days. Total variable cost $2,000,000/20,000 (6,000,000/$300), that's $100 per patient day

Our revenue per patient Therefore our unit contribution margin (page 326 and 327 in our textbook) per patient day CM= $300-$100= $200 Now for our Breakeven Point:

Question 3 If additional 20 beds added for 90 days (100% capacity on 90 days) :

Increase in revenue

666.67 (expenses) = If pediatrics rents this extra capacity from Melford Hospital for 20 beds.800 patient days (no additional staffing needed) Total Expenses $966.000 (revenue for additional 20 beds rental) .Variable Costs = Total Contribution Margin .$1. Schedule of Increase Patient Days Revenue .20 additional beds * 90 days * $300/ day Increase in costs Fixed Expenses $2.33 * 20 add.000 = Total of 21.246.67 + $180. they would actually experience the net decrease in their earnings.000/60 beds = $48. Beds Variable Expenses 20 additional beds * 90 Days * $100 (total variable cost/patient day) Salaries expenses: Annual patient days 20 additional beds for 90 days = 1800 additional patient days 1800 + 20.900.333.Fixed Costs = Operating Profit .666.000 = $540.
