ED stay should be less than six hours for admitted patients and even less for non-admitted patients. System-wide governance — Patient flow is a system-wide issue affecting the entire facility and requires commitment and leadership of the hospital executive, with cascading responsibilities throughout the organisation. Appropriate bed management practices — Active bed management assists with the delivery of quality care and hospitals should ensure that policies, procedures and governance arrangements are in place to support this practice. Efficient discharge processes — Estimated dates of discharge (EDD) improve patient management and the patient’s journey. Patients should have a discharge date estimated early in their admission. Identifying patient flow problems — Diagnostics help identify patient flow issues and select interventions. Hospitals need to understand their problems and underlying causes before initiating solutions. Measuring and monitoring performance — An operationally sustainable process for evaluating and monitoring performance is necessary to ensure accountability and appropriate action.
