NurseMind is a time management and task tracking app for nurses.
It is a smart to-do list. It knows how long things take, assists the nurse in setting priorities, and forgetting none.
Each task has a start time and duration, and the nurse checks it off once it is completed. If a task is late, it turns red. New tasks can be added on the fly. The nurse can look ahead to see what's coming up, and behind to see what's done or overlooked.
Lists can be adapted from generic examples for the workflows at specific hospitals, in specific nursing units, and for the preferences of individual nurses. These fine-tuned lists (organized as shifts and protocols) can be shared hospital-wide. This is of particular value to student nurses and to nurses who float between patient care units.
Protocols include specific treatments and cares required by patients such as mobilization, wound care, and medication administration.
The app helps the nurse to 1) be certain that no tasks are forgotten, 2) manage workflow by anticipating bottlenecks, 3) optimize task combinations such as trips to the supplies room, 4) prioritize by being able to see all pending tasks at a glance and choose what’s most important, and 5) keep track of what’s done and when.
By supporting nurses' on-the-job cognitive burden, it reduces workplace stress and increases patient safety and satisfaction.
