I'm an A&E Consultant I am trying to model some of the processes that we in A&E need to do to care for COVID patients. The issue is that some of these can happen simultaneously, or in whichever order the resources (nurses) are available. So, for instance, when a patient comes in, they need a nurse to take blood tests, another to do observations, and a third to do an ecg. All can happen at the same time, or in whichever order that the nurses are available to do them. The nurse doing the obs could even come in halfway through another nurse doing the blood tests. How on Earth do I do this?? I need this so that I can start to model the system, and work out how many staff I will need when the going gets tough, probably in a week or two. Any thoughts?
Thank you and be safe.
