Abstract Even in the best resourced units, certain situations (e.g. resuscitations) can benefit from anticipation and preplanning. A resource-scarce environment can indirectly lead to poor planning and organization. Here we share our experience of using computer software (Microsoft Office Excel) to improve the planning of patient care. This technology is now widely available and we suggest that it is feasible and, indeed, particularly valuable in a resource-poor setting. We focus on the steps taken to minimize the chances of errors rooted in the program. © 2010 Royal Society of Medicine Press.
