Improving weekend discharges and reducing patient delays


A case study into using criteria-led discharge at South Warwickshire Foundation Trust to improve weekend discharges and reduce patient delays.

Staff on Avon ward recognised that patients were not being discharged regularly at weekends, resulting in increased lengths of stay. The team implemented criteria-led discharge and were able to reduce the average length of stay on the ward from 10.3 to 6.4 days.
