Description

Excessive nursing time spent traveling between patients and Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADCs) can have unintended consequences. Even relatively simple time-motion studies and/or workflow analyses can lead to the discovery of existing, and possibly underused, capabilities for decreasing a nurse’s travel time on the unit.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify at least two potential consequences of excessive nurse walk/travel time during medication administration
  • Briefly describe how to perform a simple time-motion study on a nursing unit
  • Briefly describe how to perform a simple workflow study on a nursing unit

Audience: 

Nurse, CNO, CNIO
