NEW FEATURE: Appendix G Age Groups

Age Groups

Platinum Appendix G
We have heard your requests in regards to more flexibility to age groups and how they count when students enter in patients.

Now when a new course is created in Platinum Planner, they will default to the Platinum Appendix G Age Group.

This will allow students to enter in patients with the following age criteria.

  • Newborn – 1 hour to 23 hours
  • Neonate – 1 day to 28 days
  • Infant – More than 28 days to less than 1 year
  • Toddler – 1 year to less than 3 years
  • Preschooler – 3 years to less than 6 years
  • School Ager – 6 years to 12 years
  • Adolescent – More than 12 years to less than 18 years
  • Adult – 18 years to less than 64 years
  • Geriatric – 64 years and greater

If you clone a course, make sure to set the age group to the type you want to use as it will default to the orignal settings the course was set to.

Platinum Pre-Appendix G
No worries, your current courses won’t change. They will stay the same with
their current age group.

  • Newborn – 1 hour to less than 1 month, 7 hours
  • Infant – 1 month, 7 hours to 1 year
  • Toddler – More than 1 year to less than 3 years
  • Preschooler – 3 years to less than 6 years
  • School Ager – 6 years to less than 12 years
  • Adolescent – 12 years to less than 18 years
  • Adult – 18 years to less than 64 years
