ABSTRACT
The only way to ensure that the rooms stay full is to pay close attention to your scheduling process and identify ways to keep patients in the ORs. • Offer patients the option to move up in the schedule to another day or time if a cancellation is received. • Consider overbooking your ORs to compensate for no-shows if they are a regular occurrence in your center. • Have the surgery center manage the schedule as opposed to the physician's office so you can keep patients grouped together earlier in the day to enable you to let staff go home when there is downtime.
