Drawing up the monthly change list and the off-duty times for hospital nursing staff is an important administrative function. However, nursing management spends many valuable hours on this function. These hours can be reduced to minutes by a computer program designed for this purpose. The program also contributes to cost containment as it allows for more effective staff scheduling, particularly when used with a patient classification system. Furthermore, it provides a variety of useful management reports such as a monthly productivity summary, a monthly costanalysis report and a 24-hour staff analysis.
