Abstract

See full text

A method for preparing a patient for a medically indicated procedure such as an operation, is presented with which steps necessary for the procedure are checked and the completion of those steps verified. The method proceeds by generating a list of tasks to be carried out and a list of preparatory items in association with those tasks. Data are entered in response to prompts for the list of preparatory items and a list of tasks and of preparatory items is updated appropriately in response to that data input. This feedback looping process continues until a closed matrix of accomplished items and tasks is presented to the system and the system indicates that the patient is ready of the indicated procedure. The invention has the advantage of increased efficiency by precluding the necessity for personnel not normally responsible for a given task or item, from having to carry that item out, when it was omitted in a previous processing stage.
