Traduction en anglais : Empirical analysis of work flows in institutions of inpatient old-age care homes.
The paper starts by offering a short overview of the state of implementation of the 2nd stage of the newly introduced German Long-Term-Care-Insurance (Pflegeversicherung).
It continues to present results of a detailed descriptive analysis of employee activities in (long-term-care-) nursing-homes, differentiating by severity of the patients'condition.
Surprisingly nurses spend a large part of their time (40%) on other than nursing activities.
The time spent with individual patients varies considerably with sex and the main diagnosis ; thus significantly more time is spent on (basic and treatment-related) nursing care for male patients.
Age per se does not appear to influence the time required for taking care of a patient.
