A Novel Visualisation System for ICU Nursing Effort Per-Patient (2013)
Patient and nurse interaction in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) influences patient recovery, care and outcome [1-3]. In particular, it is imperative to build up a nurse-to-patient ratio system for ICU. However, most of evaluation systems are patient oriented, focusing on assessing the patient condition. The assumption made in these evaluation systems is that the sicker the patient, the higher nursing care provision is required. These systems are broad and may not easily differentiate patients needing more or less care. There is no standard method to consistently quantify patient and bedside nurse interaction. This paper presents a new Nurse Motion Tracking System (NMTS), which is developed to track and evaluate nursing motion at the patient bedside, aimed to quantify the time nurses spend on nursing activities.
