Marking a ward busy shows an amber colour next to the ward for 30 minutes. The post showing you how is here.
So what classifies as busy?
wardWatch envisaged busy when the ward wasn’t suitable to see patients or perform clinical skills at that time. Whether that would be because there are no suitable patients, lots of other medical students or simply there is a lot happening on the ward. Basically its down to your judgement, so we would like to here from you!
Tell us what you would class as busy on a ward, enough to let others know.
