Shifts begin at 6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, 10pm and 2am. The following table shows the nursing homes requirements for the number of attendants to be on duty during specific time periods.
Shift A, 2-6AM, needs 8 attendants.
Shift B, 6-10AM, needs 27 attendants.
Shift C, 10AM-2PM, needs 12 attendants
Shift D, 2-6PM, needs 23 attendants
Shift E, 6-10PM, needs 29 attendants
Shift F, 10PM-2AM, needs 23 attendants
