patient turnaway

(redirected from turnaway)

patient turnaway

The inability to provide a needed inpatient service due to a lack of available beds. Queuing for beds results in cancelled operations, placing of medical patients in surgical beds, missed waiting-time targets and increased hospital errors, cross-infection and patient deaths.

Whereas large hospitals in the USA and Europen have a 77–78% national average bed occupancy rate, the UK average is 87%, a rate which results in greater patient turnaway.
