Figure 5. Sample Pareto Diagram: Trauma Nurse and Interruptions (24-Hour Observation)
Note: This Pareto diagram displays the same trauma nurse's activities during the same 24-hour period illustrated in Figure 4. However, Figure 5 also breaks each bar into the frequency with which a particular activity began and ended. For example, the "attend to patient" bar has 38 components reflecting 38 separate times the nurse attended to a patient. Data in this chart are for illustrative purposes only.
