This report focuses on the surgical departments of acute care hospitals as a key factor in high turnover procedures. The aim is to analyze current nursing activities in order to optimize logistics flow. Four nurses were followed and observed in each duty. We divided their jobs into seven categories: preparation, surgical assistance, clean-up, logistics management, information, operations and others, and also analyzed each job time and travel distance. The data obtained will be compared with that in subsequent studies.
