Managing Length of Stay in the ICU
Managing length of stay in the ICU can be challenging given the medical needs of ICU patients. While a minority of hospital patients spend time in the ICU, care for those patients is costly and labor intensive and can have a large impact on a hospital’s length of stay. Understanding key obstacles to discharging from the ICU, and ways to manage those are important to improve throughput in your hospital.
In this webinar, a critical care physician and ICU care manager will share:
• Key obstacles to discharge from ICU
• Communication tips for smoother transitions out of the ICU
• Considerations for improving throughput
