Page 20 IDEAS That Work ON-TIME STARTS Bedside Check-In ******************* FAST TRACK An admissions rep uses her portable workstation to register a patient at bedside. ******************* Want to shave 30 to 45 minutes off your admission times and improve your first-case on-time starts? Register patients at bedside. After we give patients an armband, we bring them straight back to pre-op rather than asking them to take a seat in our waiting room.
