A new bedside data entry system is being developed for the patient data management system at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of the Montreal Children's Hospital. Part of this development is the addition of a nursing workload manager (NWM) to help plan and document the nurses' workload. The NWM has four main functions: generate nursing care plans, automate workload measurement scoring, schedule nursing activities, and set up fluid balance charts by integrating with a fluid balance module. The design and operation of the NWM are presented. The implementation of the nursing care plan generation and workload measurement scoring is detailed along with the results of a user evaluation session. The application was developed using IBM's OS/2 Presentation Manager window environment
