production pressure


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia.

production pressure

The idea that an institution's quantity of productivity is more important than its quality. In health care institutions, the pressure to move patients quickly from one status or setting to another, or to maximize bed occupancy, may sometimes take precedence over attention to detail and the provision of optimal care. To counteract such pressures, health care professionals must communicate clearly and effectively with each other, follow established safe practices, have methods for reporting errors, and have protocols that link providers of different organizational status.

Note that the dramatic changes of [Q.sub.R] at about 2.5 days are due to the wellbore pressure disturbance (Figure 7), which indicates that the decomposition of hydrate is extremely sensitive to production pressure. Further consideration of the difference between [Q.sub.R] and [Q.sub.G] suggests that the released gas cannot be trapped completely and most of which still remained in the hydrate reservoirs.
