In time motion study as we know it is a straight and steady observation of a task, using a various parameter like stopwatch, video so that we can record time taken for the procedure. study was implemented in a hospital of 300 bedded in Pune city, in which 300 are the patient’s number for studying discharge process in it. Also, the study has been managed on 270 patients admitted at a multispecialty hospital, Ludhiana to compare flow of discharge process with NABH criteria or standards.
