  1. Long Stay Patient Project “Stranded Patients” 08 April 2013 Presented by Andrew Davies Project Leaders: Alicia Sutton, Charlotte Porter

  2. ADHB %<6 Hour Performance

  3. The Problem: Not just in ED

  4. Why Focus on Long Stay Patients? • Voice of staff • Recommended next steps from other acute flow projects (e.g. Daily Rapid Rounds) • Literature Review • Healthcare Advisory Board – Maximizing Hospital Capacity (2002)

  5. ADHB General Medicine – Evaluating the Opportunity Patients with Over 10 Day Length of Stay LOS > 10 Days LOS > 10 Days Patients with Over 21 Day Length of Stay LOS > 21 Days LOS > 21 Days ADHB General Medicine Discharges from July 2004 to March 2013

  6. The Project • Initiated Long-Stay Patient Project in General Medicine – April 2012 • Clinical note review conducted of all > 21 day patients discharged from December 2010 to December 2011 • Implemented first improvements from July 2012 to December 2012 • Leveraged results and actions to other service areas

  7. Causes for Delay - Over 21 Day Patients Top Causes • Rest Home / Private Hospital Placement • PPPR • Social Work Input • Older Peoples Health Review & Placement

  8. Other Observations During Audit • Significant variation in practice of how the plan for the stay is managed • No standard Admission to Discharge process followed for 1st time Rest Home / Private Hospital patients • No escalation criteria to involve Service Manager, Nurse Advisor & Clinical Director. • Poor visibility of current long-stay patients leading to variation in management

  9. Increase Visibility in Service of Long Stay Patients • Daily Long Stay Patient report automated, reviewed by Nurse Specialists & Charge Nurses (July – 2012)

  10. Increase Visibility in Service of Long Stay Patients • Long Stay Patient Report reviewed and discussed weekly at General Medicine Production Meeting (October 2012) • Issues escalated to Service Manager, Nurse Advisor & Clinical Director • Charge Nurses, Nurse Specialists & Nurse Educators also attend

  11. Increase Visibility in Service of Long Stay Patients • Include LOS on Patient Status at a Glance whiteboards on Wards 65, 66, 67, 68 (January 2013) • Visible in Nursing Station and can be flagged at Daily Rapid Rounds Current LOS Added to Whiteboards

  12. Results: Proportion of Over 10 Day LOS Patients Lowest Proportion of > 10 Day Patients Ever @ 6.1% (January to March 2013) • Daily Rapid Rounds implemented (Feb 2010) • New medical model of care implemented (Dec 2011) • Split Acute (APU) & Inpatient Ward • 4-8 p.m. on-call consultant on-site • Additional weekend medical staff • Long Stay Project Commenced (Apr 2012) • Long Stay Patient Visibility and Standard Escalation Practices implemented (Sep-Dec 2012) Quarterly Proportion of > 10 Day LOS Patients since July 2007 Key Projects 1 3 4 2 1 2 3 4

  13. Results: General Medicine Average Length of Stay Shortest Quarterly Average Length of Stay Ever @ 2.97 (January to March 2013) • Daily Rapid Rounds implemented (Feb 2010) • New medical model of care implemented (Dec 2011) • Split Acute (APU) & Inpatient Ward • 4-8 p.m. on-call consultant on-site • Additional weekend medical staff • Long Stay Project Commenced (Apr 2012) • Long Stay Patient Visibility and Standard Escalation Practices implemented (Sep-Dec 2012) Quarterly Average LOS Patients since July 2004 Key Projects 1 3 4 2 1 2 3 4

  14. Results: General Medicine Average Length of Stay Quarterly Average LOS Patients since July 2004 4 2 1 0.5 day reduction in Average LOS ~ 6,000 bed days/yr

  15.

  17. Initiatives to improve the flow within secondary facilities 10. Integrated Ops centre 11. Management of escalation practices 12. Improved utilization of bed capacity at GSU 13. Elimination of duplicated documentation between AED and IP specialties 14. National shared care plan 15. Matching medical resources to demand 16. Coordination between AED and IP 17. Stranded Patients 18. Proactive discharging 19. Medical HDU and enhanced DCCM admission criteria 20.
