Nurses’ responses to interruptions during medication tasks: A time and motion study

Nurses’ responses to interruptions during medication tasks: A time and motion study BackgroundThe majority of interruption research has focused on the undesirable effects of interruptions, especially related to errors during medication tasks. However, there may be times when interruptions result in positive effects by providing new information to a situation or preventing an error. The study of nurses’ responses to interruptions is limited. Since interruptions cannot (and possibly should not) be avoided, a reasonable method for handling interruptions might be to learn how best to prepare for and manage interruption-prone situations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Nursing Studies Elsevier

Abstract

BackgroundThe majority of interruption research has focused on the undesirable effects of interruptions, especially related to errors during medication tasks. However, there may be times when interruptions result in positive effects by providing new information to a situation or preventing an error. The study of nurses’ responses to interruptions is limited. Since interruptions cannot (and possibly should not) be avoided, a reasonable method for handling interruptions might be to learn how best to prepare for and manage interruption-prone situations.
