(4) Based on the percentage and overtime duration, it was estimated that the nurses' shortage was about 20 employees; (5)Extended work hours of nursing staffs were significantly relative to patient-nurse ratio, the number of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation(CPR) and the procedure of chemotherapy during the shift. This research results would be valuable to human resource allocation and work process reengineering in the nursing management aspect.
