Long Length of Stay
If you do need to stay with us, then we’ll want to start planning for you to go home from when you arrive – because we know that keeping you in a hospital bed when you don’t need to be in one can actually slow down your recovery. It’s also important to us that we have our beds available for patients who really need them.
We want to reduce long lengths of stay for our patients as much as possible and avoid patients being stranded in a hospital bed by carrying out weekly reviews of any long-term inpatients.
This work is led by our Chief Nurse, Vicky Morris and our Deputy Chief Nurse, Lisa Miruszenko.
