Optimizing Observation Status



Management of observation patients can be inconsistent, inefficient, and negatively impact length of stay, bed utilization, and finances.


Improving the management of observation patients requires a team approach. Physicians, nursing, case management, and finance must work as an integrated team day in and day out. Easier said than done.
