Abstract

Inspired by a shortage of qualified nursing personnel at local facilities, a group of University of Toronto researchers has created a simulation based decision support tool that enables hospitals to determine the overall effect of making modifications to operating room schedules, as well as a number of other system parameters, including the number of inpatient beds and the amount of nursing time available on surgical wards.
