Abstract

ABSTRACT

Having used a Patient Classification System for six years which had limited psychiatric indicators and data processed elsewhere at considerable delay, Alberta Hospital Ponoka implemented a new system which has met with great success. Generic workload indicators were developed by staff. These could be modified easily to meet various unit needs. Relatively accurate prediction of staffing needs greatly facilitates budgeting.
