Rounding physicians: Remember to check-in
10/4/2013

Over the summer, as part of a LEAN process improvement initiative to reduce patient length of stay, Physician Check-in was implemented on Lancaster General Hospital inpatient units. The goal is to enhance physician rounding by connecting physicians with the appropriate registered nurse in a timely manner.
 
To date, a very low percentage of physicians have followed the check-in process on a regular basis.
 
The illustration below describes how the process works. Please remember to check-in for better rounding outcomes.
