The Assignment Task

Bed turnaround at Lynfield mount is of critical importance as bed availability might be the difference between life and death for patients.

The time from when a patient is discharged to the time when a new patient is assigned to the bed is referred to as the bed assignment turnaround time.

If the bed turnaround time is excessive, it can cause problems with patient flow and delayed medical procedures throughout the hospital.

This can cause long waiting times for physicians and patients thus creating customer dissatisfaction.

The admissions RN has asked a patient care associate to gather data on patient turnaround times and the reasons why there is excessive variability in turnaround times.

The following were reasons given for delays in the turnaround times:

Additionally, shortage of clean bedding- 9 incidents

Also, cleaning staff unavailability- 3 incidents

More so, registered Nurse unavailability- 36 incidents

Patient associates (family)- 2 incidents

Lack of wheelchairs for leaving patient- 8 incidents

Lack of communication- 15 incidents

Day of the week- 10 incidents

Time of the day- 7 incidents

Patient not ready to leave hospital- 13 incidents

Patient unwillingness to be discharged- 4 incidents

Lost patient property– 7 incidents

Below is a table showing 25 sample times gathered by the patient care associate.
