There is always the need to introduce more changes or modification in Hospital curricula particularly in the area of their duties scheduling to be able to meet demand. Medical duties scheduling is a list of activities or things to be done showing the time or dates when they are intended to happen in a tabular form.
The design of Hospital medical duties scheduling to a particular duties at a particular time to avoid unnecessary clashes. Medical duties scheduling system enable in to tract the where about of any medical personnel at a particular point in time and the problems encountered in manual preparation are been detected solution to the problem of medical duties scheduling system are solved and recommendation made on how to maintain the system effectively.
Hospital is an aspect that schedule plays a vital role for succeful achievement of its curriculums. Hospital work take a succeeding step. Each step has a specified duration of time and a mapped out work coed associated with it. The time stipulated to be utilized maximally to enable you cover the work load elaborately.
The issue of analysis the work load and time involved in a Hospital category and distributing the work load is time intervals. For maximum knowledge in pact it a great concern to the professorate in the field. This is where comprehensive medical duties schedule is always designed to suit the curriculum.
Medical duties schedule does not only involved the all capture of time duties to medical personnel, it also involve the careful allocation other resources like labor force and space available. When all these factor are not adequately taken care of, it lead to classes which hinder the effective Hospital operation.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Enugu State University of Science and Technology Teaching Hospital ESUT TEACHING HOSPITAL ENUGU ESUT Teaching Hospital Enugu came into existence on the 25 day of August 2004, through the effort of Governor Chimaroke Nnamani, who established. The hospital provide qualitative Health care services but maintains that they do not just heal mere physical illness which attacks the human body, but a much deeper and holistic healing of the entire human person. Therefore ESUT Teaching Hospital is not just and Ordinary Hospital where patients come to receive medical treatment to heal their ailing body only.
The diverse nature of the cases treated by the hospital, coupled with the fact that they consistent effort they make to develop their service areas and acceptable standard. These service areas include all the wards medical and surgical for male and female, pediatrics, chest unit and the maternity section as a whole. Other departments are out patient department OPD, laboratory department, pharmacy department, central sterding and supply department C.S.S.D XRAY department community medicine and the mobile clinic, theatre department. The roles of these departments are complementary and depict what they call teamwork in patient management, the patient always beings at the center.
The Hospital since its establishment has demonstrated a very keen interest in the staff recruitment and development of highly skilled and very dependable medical and paramedical personnel. Presently, their work force stands at 460.
1.2STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
The problem associated with the old manual system of medical outies scheduling hindered effective table predication.
It takes a lot of time to process the volume of data involved menially. This makes analysis and synthesis difficult for man to carry out.
The existing system waste a lot of time. This delay the in effect set back of the Hospital operation. The manual medical duties scheduling causes lot of have and clashes. Duties clashes between Doctors also medical duties scheduling unreliable.
Due to manual approach toward medical duties schedule, the there is a problem of time consuming, Repeated process and clash/conflict of fixtures.
1.3PURPOSE OF STUDY
this study is carried out with a view of producing a computerized medical duties scheduling during manual medical duties scheduling. The new system will also produce a comprehensive and authentic medical duties schedule.
This study also proves the capabilities of the computer in the area of processing concerning the Hospital sector. By implementing computer, one would be able to obtain information needed at a particular point in time. Finally, the study was also carried out to the rode of medical duties schedule medical duties preparation in valves a lot of work in area of processing ie allocation of available resources to avoid clashes.
The major clashes that always occur is the Doctors and nurses clashes. The Doctor clash takes place when two Doctor is assigned to work at the same period of time, like wise nurses clash.
To handle this aspect successfully and to produce a reliable result a more sophisticated machine like computer has to be introituses. The computer with it sophisticated features will handle the time table preparation processing in an automatic way. It automatically according to predefined program instructions. This will lessen the work involved in the preparation of medical duties scheduling and aid in producing adequate and comprehensive medical duties scheduling.
1.4AIM AND OBJECTIVES
several department in the University of Nigeria teaching Hospital Enugu have been for the past year eve till date designing their Duties schedule manually.
The primary aim of this project work is to relied the burden and obstacle hungering the production of effective medical duties schedule by developing a computer program which will be timely, more accurate more reliable and more comprehensive. This new system also makes the entire operation very easy.
