DCCS Surgery Management Improvement Group recently partnered with a busy South Florida Hospital with 16 high volume ORs and complex cases.
The program was chronically short-staffed resulting in regular overtime, quality and safety issues, an inefficient OR, and dissatisfied surgeons.
Agency and overtime expenses were costing the hospital $2.2 million annually.
DCCS Surgery Program Results
DCCS worked with the hospital leadership to address the Surgical Program inefficiencies. During the engagement we:
Recruited 20 RNs, 10 surgical techs, and 8 support staff
Eliminated use of agency staffing
Improved case efficiency (First case on-time start improved to 82%, case turnover time reduced to avg. 36 minutes)
Surgeon satisfaction greatly improved
The client engaged DCCS Surgery Management Improvement Group to continue ongoing improvement initiatives.
