How emergency room physician scheduling software helps in the spring months

Posted on 4/11/2018 by Elizabeth in category: scheduling software articles

The spring months tend to bring in more patients to the emergency room, particularly if they live in areas where they've been cooped up all winter long. People are out trying to groom their yards and prepare it for the next few warmer months. Unfortunately, springtime is the time for more injuries, including fractured or broken bones and lacerations. Below are some spring injuries that will result in your hospital filling up with more patients. 

Lawn Mowers

Lawn mowers are a big culprit of sending people to the emergency room. It's a great machine that can finely manicure anyone's lawn, but it also comes with a variety of potential traumatic disasters. Ensuring you have your emergency room physician scheduling software ready is vital because you're going to need that extra set of hands to care for the incoming patients.


People love their tools, and they are extremely handy. People love being able to fill their garage full of shiny new gadgets and tools they can put into action at any given moment. But, tools also come with their own wide range of potential injuries and your hospital needs to be prepared for that.


Falls are common injuries. Often, falls occur in people who work above the ground in jobs like:

- Cleaning gutters
- Trimming trees
- Fixing roofs
- Painting houses

This is yet another reason to access your emergency medicine software and get those shifts filled.

Burning Brush

After a long winter, there will be plenty of branches and brush to clear away in the springtime. People often burn their branches and brush. Sometimes, they don't take the necessary precautions and steps to prevent house fires and end up with injuries trying to put them out.

As it is already, emergency departments face a number of challenges. They are either overcrowded or short staffed and it all adds pressure to an already intense medical specialty. If part of your job is emergency medicine scheduling, you need to schedule the right physicians at the right time to ensure your patients are properly cared for.

Physician scheduling software will benefit your ER department by:

- Saving time.
- Improving employee productivity.
- Improving patient care.
- Providing your doctors with 24/7 access to their schedules.
- Allowing doctors to swap shifts if needed.
- Allowing you to easily schedule more doctors for emergency situations.

The beginning of the vernal equinox will no doubt bring in more patients to your emergency room due to people exerting their efforts into getting their gardens and lawns fit for spring conditions. People are also out and about exercising and recreating more. Because of this, its important that you have enough staff members scheduled to accommodate this extra influx of patients and shift scheduling software can help make the process much easier.
