Why Patients Get Delayed

Many things can delay patients throughout their episode of care, but lots of it is preventable, and results from poor planning, communication and the mis-synchronisation of tasks, due to:

Unclear treatment planning
what, how, for how long
Unclear dependency
when should therapy start/finish
Unclear treatment end point
inability to plan other tasks in parallel
Last minute planning of non-clinical tasks
care needs, housing, long term placement
Poor communication of changes
change in recovery/discharge date to be brought forward or extended
Mis-synchronisation
dis-jointed multi-disciplinary team, subjectivity

In theory, these things should run in parallel but often they do not. The plans can be incoherent and unclear and the execution of the plans mis-synchronised.
