Lost Bed Time is the length of time hospital beds remain unoccupied. Using technology and better process, Lost Bed Time can be reduced to <90 minutes per patient placement, potentially releasing 160 minutes of bed capacity per admission and 96 minutes per internal transfer. Lost Bed Time is made up of three significant components:
- Notification Time: 'The patient has left the bed, but nobody has been notified'
- Preparation Time: 'The bed is now empty but needs cleaning'
- Occupation Time: 'The bed is clean, a patient has been assigned to the bed, but the bed is still empty'
