Bypass of an anesthesiologist-directed preoperative evaluation clinic results in greater first-case tardiness and turnover times.
Epstein RH, Dexter F, Schwenk ES, Witkowski TA
We evaluated 4 hypotheses related to bypass of an anesthesiologist-directed preoperative evaluation clinics (APEC): 1) first-case tardiness and turnover times increased; 2) turnover times increased more than first-case tardiness; and higher American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status (ASA PS) resulted in both an ordered increase among ASA PS and within ASA PS in 3) first-case tardiness; and 4) turnover times.
