Special emphasis has been laid on defining the terms like Average length of stay, Bed Occupancy Rate, Inpatient, Patient turnover rate. Discharge planning is an important part of the any hospital admission. It play an important role in ensuring a smooth move from hospital to home. With elective care, discharge planning should start before admission this allows everyone to focus on a clear endpoint in the patients care. It also reduces errors and unnecessary delays along the patient pathway. If inpatient beds are a bottleneck, reducing pressure on the beds will increase throughput and therefore reduce referral to treatment times.
