    Currently our nurses complete the same paperwork, perform the same screenings, and do a full admission for every patient regardless of their status: inpatient, observation, ambulatory, or outpatient. This is very standard but not very efficient. Inpatient length of stay averages 5 days, whereas ambulatory and observation are less then 24 hours, while outpatient is typically only a few hours. We are tryng to determine if their is a more efficient way to handle the nurse admission process. For example many of our nurses tell us for non-inpatients they are still performing admission tasks and the patient is ready to go home. Do any hospitals have a better way of handling this?
