Multidisciplinary rounds have become a must, experts say.
Hosp Case Manag. 2014 Aug;22(8):101-3
Multidisciplinary rounds are a good way to improve throughput, reduce length of stay and readmissions, and improve patient satisfaction, experts say. They add: The meetings help the care team identify what is needed for discharge and get all of the disciplines on the same page. The structure and participants will vary by organization, but nursing, case management, finance, and pharmacy should be represented. The meetings should be at the same time and place every day and should last no more than 45 minutes.
