Project Details


We analyzed the workflow for caretakers in a nursing home using discrete event simulation. Various statistical analyses, including Poisson regression, defined the basis of the simulation model.

Key findings

Sensitivity analyses indicated that the response time for acute calls can be substantially reduced by assigning a single caretaker to all acute calls, and the remaining caretakers to other assignments.
