Case study – Cost of bed blockers


NHS Forth Valley knew that patients were not being discharged on time but did not know just how expensive this was. Using Checklist Bed Manager they could model what the hospital would look like if each individual patient were to be discharged on, or near to, their “ready for discharge date”. Now, with a detailed understanding of the cost of delayed discharges, they can negotiate badly needed solutions with the local social service departments.
