Board game provides training and insight for hospital staff
Hartford Courant, January 29, 2008
"Friday Night at the ER" is a decision-making game developed by a consultant from Johns Hopkins University designed to help hospital departments to work together more efficiently. Four-player teams try to juggle a limited number of hospital beds, a relentless influx of patients and a gradual attrition of nurses to care for them. The decisions come while racing against a clock that forces faster and faster decisions, and every so often game cards announce another mini-crisis to ramp up the pressure.
