Development of automated schedule generator for nurses in emergency department

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Nurse scheduling problem (NSP) is considered as a special case of staff scheduling problem with high level of complexity due to number of constraints and its unique nature. Nurse provides vital service to the patients in hospitals and hospitals need to distribute schedule among nurses on 24 hours a day and 7 days a week basis preventing coverage drawbacks and maximizing fairness. This work presents a developed program that solves the NSP in emergency department. The schedule generated by the developed program is found to be satisfactory in terms of variability of nurse days-off and execution time.
