A well designed planning board allows staff to quickly communicate schedules and schedule changes through a visual display. Scheduling for a fast-paced operating room for example, can ensure that all staff members are prepared and knowledgeable of what’s to come. These boards allow you to know when and where personnel are stationed during each shift, creating organization and efficiency through your department.
Also, planning boards help to reduce potential conflicts or miscommunication that may occur. Not only is it often easier to communicate through visual display, but it’s also easier for people to remember information that has been communicated visually.
Often a planning board can include information such as doctors name, procedure time, room name or number, etc. Our Magnetic Work/Planning Board Kits have a more basic planning board design, which is easy to setup and make changes to it. Included in this kit are black magnetic indicators, red and black bullet point dry-erase markers, magnetic felt eraser and hanging hardware. This unique planning board kit affords maximum efficiency.
