Question

General Hospital admits an average of 8 patients per hour. Use the Poisson probability table below to determine the probability that between 3 and 7 patients (inclusively) are admitted in the next 30 minutes.

Answer #1

Rate ()
= 8

For a Poisson Distribution

time (t) = 0.5 (30/60)

Since we know that for poisson distribution

the average number of patients arriving at the emergency room is
10 per hour, what probability distribution should be used in order
to find the probability that at least 8 patient will arrive within
the next hour
a-binomial
b-poisson
c-multinomial
d-uniform
e-geometric

. Reimbursement Methods
A. A hospital admits 525 patients per
month who stay an average of five (5.0) days per admission. This
hospital charges $12,000 per admission and incurs $7,100 in costs
($4,000 fixed and $3,100 variable) per patient. Assume all patients
are reimbursed under the same reimbursement method, complete the
table and calculate net income for the hospital under each
reimbursement method.
A. 80% of
Charges:
B. Cost:
C. $1,550 per
diem:
D. $7,250 per...

On average, 10 patients visit a doctor’s surgery every hour.
What is the probability that in the next 15 minutes, more than 1
patient will visit the surgery? Assuming the number of patients
visiting a doctor’s surgery follows a Poisson distribution.

-On the weekend, emergency services average four
patients per hour, and the service rate is expected to be 40

Customers arrive to a savings bank according to a Poisson
distribution with mean 3 per hour. Then, they either complete a
transaction with a bank teller or meet with a financial officer,
and leave the bank when they are done.
What is the probability that exactly 2 customers arrive in the
next three hours?
What is the probability that at least 3 customers arrive in the
next two hours?

The arrival of patients in a clinic (with only 1
doctor) follows a Poisson process with a level of 30 patients per
hour. The clinic has a waiting room that can accommodate no more
than 14 people. The doctor's service time at the clinic follows an
exponential distribution with an average of 3 minutes per
patient.
a. Determine the opportunity that a patient who comes doesn't need
to wait.
b. Determine the opportunity that a patient who comes will find...

Every day, patients arrive at the dentist’s office. If the
Poisson distribution were applied to this process:
a.) What would be an appropriate random variable? What would be
the exponential-distribution counterpart to the random
variable?
b.)If the random discrete variable is Poisson distributed with λ
= 10 patients per hour, and the corresponding exponential
distribution has x = minutes until the next arrival, identify the
mean of x and determine the following:
1. P(x less than or equal to 6)...

Visitors arrive to an internet site according to a Poisson
process with an average of 10 visitors per hour. Use this
