An apparatus and method are disclosed for improving a medical infusion pump. Users of medical infusion pumps, such as insulin pumps, require a bolus of a medication at predicable times of the day, such as at or near mealtimes for insulin pumps. The disclosed medical infusion pump determines bolus time intervals during which boluses are usually taken, and, alerts the user at one or more calculated alert times during an active bolus time interval when a bolus has not yet been delivered during the active bolus time interval. Advantageously, a different set of bolus time intervals are determined by day of week, to accommodate, for example, different bolus patterns during weekends versus weekdays.
