Problem Solving the Staffing and Fiscal Scenario

Jill, The Nurse Manager of the Surgical Unit is dealing with a scenario that incorporates both staffing and fiscal/finances.

Jill has noticed that for the last few weeks, when she is not there, the unit is staffed with 1-2 more nurses than the staffing patterns and acuity show is necessary.  This is concerning because it is spending over budget, but Jill wants to determine what is going on.  This morning, while pondering what to do about the situation, a nurse from another area in the hospital said she noticed the staff were websurfing and spending time chatting in the report room a great deal of the shift.

Pretend you are Jill.  What action or actions would you take first to problem solve through this scenario?  Describe your actions and the rationales for your actions to problem solve this case.
