Analyze the variances in the following scenario: You are the nursing administrator for a medical group that expects a severe outbreak of the flu this winter. You
hire additional staff to treat the patients and administer shots. Your special project budget was for 1,000 hours of part-time nurses’ services at $40 per hour,
for a total cost of $40,000. It was expected that these nurses would administer 400 flu shots and treat 1,600 flu patients. The medical group typically charges $50
for a flu shot and $80 for treating a flu patient. Actually, the group had 1,200 patients who received the flu shot and 1,400 who had the flu and received
treatment. On average, it was able to collect $55 per flu shot and $70 per flu patient. Compute the volume, mix, and price revenue variances. How did things turn
out for the group considering just revenues? How did they turn out from a profit perspective? Use either the approach from chapter 8 or from Appendix 8-A to solve.
Clearly label the calculations of the required variances using Excel. Use formulas to calculate the three variances and format the cells to insert a comma if there
is more than three numbers and round to the nearest whole number.
