egilh project #4: hospital infections and re-operation analysis

A data entry and analysis DB implemented with Access 1.1. The operator could enter information about operations (open wound, day hospital etc), track infections and operations that had to be repeated (because of infections or other causes)

When: early 90s

Lessons learned:

  • Don't get sick in August when the regular doctors go on vacation. The number of re-operations and infections raise drastically and drop just as fast when they come back

  • Access is great for making data entry applications and prototypes. But, you can go crazy if you want your application to work in a slightly different way

  • Don't use too much water when washing the stairs (I had an apartment in a house with serveral nurses while working on the application and I had to take my turn washing the stairs)
