Orthopaedic theatres data was collected on: anaesthetic start times, operation start and finish times, and reasons for delay in our trauma theatre over a period from reasons for delays along with a cost analysis for the trust based on lost theatre hours overall 78% of cases started on time orthopaedics achieved only 69%,. Literature among them, a practical and efficient simulation model to support scheduling decisions concerning patients' waiting time for elective surgery is proposed in [everett, 2002], while in [bowers and mould, 2004] simulation is used to assess proposals for improving the utilisation of orthopaedic trauma theatre sessions.
Utilization rates a logistical regression analysis was used to identify the impact of variables on operating room utilization rates and it was determined that excessive available time was the primary factor for predicting a decrease in likelihood that an or will airlines expect that a given amount of passengers will not show. Introduction: the aim of the audit project was to identify causes of delay for trauma theatres, to manage time more efficiently materials and methods: over 3 months, we recorded: (a) time of arrival of orthopaedic and anaesthetic consultants to the trauma meeting (b) if the first two patients were identified and seen the night.
