Criteria-led discharge tracker for ward-based mental health patients

(0)

A case study from Bradford District Care Foundation Trust outlines the trust's approach to delivering a live system with up-to-date clinical information — to support timely discharge from wards.

The trust found its current process for discharging patients (when a patient was medically ready) relied on the opinion of individual staff — who would liaise with the consultant to finalise the process. This way of working disrupted patient flow and meant patients had to remain in hospital for longer.

The solution

Bradford District Care Foundation Trust created a live system with up-to-date clinical information to enable ward teams and clinical managers to make safe clinical decisions that support timely discharge.
