Healthcare professional have a long history of helpful for their patient and to improve the quality of their service. In the Tome periods of 1853 to 1856, the Crimean War the British nurse Florence Nightingale recognized that the mortality rate of soldier was far too high. A unworkable statistician as well as a capable nurse, she spent months to analyze data to identify what caused the high rate of mortality. She found that hygiene and sanitization was neglected in the triage and care of the soldier.
To get the maintenance she needed for positive change. She created a “rose diagram” that visually displayed the primary causes of soldier mortality and convinced others of the problem.
Without recognizing it, Nightingale trained lean and she saw a problem, generated a solution, and applied it. She focused on to improve the care that her patient received. Her ultimate goal was to keep them safe and lead them to wellness.
Hence Now a days, many hospital continue to face similar task and they continue to meet those challenge. Like the method Nightingale used, these tool focus on to improve how things work that based on what patients need. The Quality and safety always come first in lean healthcare.
Lean healthcare challenges:
The compression to do more with less associate function, decrease inventory, find lower cost tool and cut labor costs has presented hospital with similar challenge.
On the other surface, this change creates sense. It designed to reduce cost and simplify the overall process. However, there were some unplanned significance:
- Up to 10 surgeries a week are cancelled due to dirty or incomplete implement set.
- There are 50,000 dirty tools for every 1 million managed. The industry standard is 3.4 or less per 1 million.
- Some dirty tools are not found until the surgery has already started.
