Jung Hyup Kim, an associate professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, is investigating how to help nurses spend more time with patients who need extra care, especially in a hectic intensive care unit environment (ICU).
Kim and his team will use real-time locating system to learn how nurses participating in the study move around the ICU. They’ll also be able to see how much time the nurses spend in patient rooms.
The data collected can help determine why patient care was delayed or missed. It will also help identify opportunities to enhance workflow management design and reduce the total workload for ICU nurses — allowing nurses to spend more time with their critically ill patients.
