Presentation: Beds, Math and Beyond – Improving bed management in a hospital day-surgery unit by analyzing data and process flow. To reduce the number of surgeries that needed to be delayed or cancelled, a Canadian hospital undertook a process improvement project focused on bed management issues within its day-surgery unit. After analyzing data and patient flow, an improvement team designed a new bed assignment approach. The team was able to implement changes to free up more beds and better manage patient flow.
