Discharge Delay Tool
Discharge delay in intensive care units (ICUs) is an important quality and efficiency challenge. Such delays can result in inefficient use of resources leading to cancellation and rescheduling of surgical admissions. Discharge delays can also cause delays in admission from ER and increased ICU length of stay (LOS). These results lead to higher hospitalization cost and charges. However, some ICUs have managed to solve the discharge delay problem and sustain the efficiency at their institution for many years.
VPS now provides a tool to estimate the financial impact of reclaiming nursing costs by reducing your ICU's discharge delay. Please download the following documents below to learn more, or email us at for further information.
