Healthcare Ergonomics

Having an ergonomically sound healthcare environment is vital.

Now, more than ever, caregivers are working with clinical software applications as part of their daily workflows. But as the use of  hospital based software for data entry and manual handling of hospital equipments and patients has increased. The incidence of musculoskeletal injury among caregivers, impacting productivity and the quality of care

Hospitals offer a multitude of opportunities for ergonomists to improve the comfort and health of their employees. Only a few of which have been considered here.

With increasing pressures on healthcare, effective hospital ergonomics will become increasingly important.

To be most effective, ergonomists must be involved in the design of facilities, jobs and work processes, in the selection of work equipment and in personnel training.

Each hospital needs a comprehensive site-wide ergonomics plan and allocate the necessary resources to support this.

Human error means that something has been done that was “not intended by the actor; not desired by a set of rules or an external observer; or that led the task or system outside its acceptable limits”. In short, it is a deviation from intention, expectation or desirability. Human actions can fail to achieve their goal in two different ways: the actions can go as planned, but the plan can be inadequate (leading to mistakes); or, the plan can be satisfactory, but the performance can be deficient (leading to slips and lapses). However, a mere failure is not an error if there had been no plan to accomplish something in particular

User-centered design process can help software designers to fulfill the goal of a product engineered for their users. User requirements are considered right from the beginning and included into the whole product cycle. These requirements are noted and refined through investigative methods including: ethnographic study, contextual inquiry, prototype testing, usability testing and other methods. Generative methods may also be used including: card sorting, affinity diagramming and participatory design sessions. In addition, user requirements can be inferred by careful analysis of usable products similar to the product being designed
