Improving OR efficiency with constraint management

By: OR Manager

Editor's Note

Simple changes in preadmission testing and OR scheduling, including appointing a senior nurse anesthetist to help direct OR use, resulted in improvements in OR efficiency and case volume in this study.

Substantial improvement was seen in first case on-time starts (39% to 84%), as well as utilization of OR time, and case volume.
