    Has anyone done a project on reducing reoccuring delays in discharging patients and thereby reducing length of stay? I’d love to hear some success stories!
    Thanks

    JP,
    There’s an article on iSixSigma discussing that exact issue. Here is the link: http://healthcare.isixsigma.com/library/content/c030708a.asp
    Is that what you were looking for?

    Thanks Carol.
    I was looking more for delays before the discharge order, i.e; discharge planning failures, procedures and testing back logs, rehabilitation delays…reducing avoidable delays so that a patient can be dsicharged in the expected length of time.

    JP,
    Wondered if you were successful in your search for pre-discharge planning six sigma projects.
