Hospital plan boosts patient response times by almost 30%
A new plan will allow hospitals to use hospital equipment to manage the symptoms of more serious diseases, researchers say.
The new treatment, dubbed “Hospital of the Future” by NHS researchers, provides a faster response time for patients.
They say the new treatment will allow patients treated at a hospital within 12 hours to be discharged home – rather than waiting months for their treatment to be completed.
The results are published today by the journal Cochrane Library.
The findings come after doctors and nurses had warned for some time that the need for new and rapid treatment was increasing, according to the journal.
In the last year the number of people being admitted to hospitals in England to have their heart attacks, strokes or cancer treated has doubled, as has the number of patients discharged before the operation.
This has led to a “fatal over-prescribing crisis” as hospitals have become reliant on doctors to find patients before deciding whether to turn up with an operation, said Professor Steve Tregone, the lead author of the Cochrane study.
He added: “There is a huge amount of money being spent for hospital-based care and the funding for this hasn’t kept up with demand.
“Instead the pressure is now on the patient, the hospital and the NHS to find faster ways of providing this care, but the NHS will 바카라사이트need to provide even faster clinical and administrative capacity to cope.
“It seems logical that it would be appropriate to offer the right set of tools to hospital clinicians who are mjarvees.comaking this effort.”
In his paper Professor Andrew Wakefield, from the University of Cambridge, is one of the first doctors and nurses to raise concerns about patients being held up waiting for an operation.
He said: “This is not the solution – at least not in my view – as it would mean there would be little value in offering better patient outcomes and hospital treatment because there would be so many patients.”
The research was based on more than 30 years of hospital data, as well as from the US and the UK.
Dr Tregone, from the University of Cambridge said: “In terms of patient outcomes we were surprised by the magnitude of the difference between the hospital time and the waiting times at home.
“What it doesn’t tell you is how much improvement in these outcomes will come from the hospital being able to use hospital equipment to manage patients at home – there have been wa바카라사이트rnings recently that they hav
