This study examined the effect of a finite amount of information being displayed in three different methods: one high density, two moderate density, or three low density screens.
Screens displaying retrieved laboratory results were used to test clinical nurses' task times, accuracy, and subjective screen satisfaction.
The study sample was 110 randomly selected clinical nurses from a university medical center.
Repeated measures with post-hoc analyses indicated that, for all repetitions and for practiced tasks, nurses found information targets significantly more quickly on high density than either moderate or low, and significantly more quickly on moderate versus low density screens.
Nurses' mean accuracy and screen satisfaction scores were essentially the same for the three screens.
