Abstract:
Paper Presentation: A Magnet Emergency Department nursing staff explored ways to shorten turnaround time and reduce space requirements using Lean principles. Specific goals of the project were to shorten the average length of stay and determine space requirements for a planned new facility. A Lean team videotaped ED visits from arrival to discharge. After analyzing the footage minute by minute, the team identified problems with linear process and access to supplies as key causes of delay. The team implemented a series of corrective measures including standardizing treatment rooms, moving specialized supplies to mobile carts and "stacking" the care process. Flow process changes resulted in a 29% reduction in turnaround time, improved patient satisfaction to the 94th percentile on a nationally recognized patient survey, and reduced overall numbers of rooms needed in the planned facility, thereby reducing anticipated construction costs. The Lean process allowed ED staff to look at patient flow concerns from a fresh perspective and find new solutions.
