This article was originally published in Clinica
Scotland has fallen short of its target to reduce delayed hospital discharges, auguring a continued focus on alternative care, including point-of-care services. In the year to April 2005, there was an 18% reduction in delayed discharges, against a target of 20%, from 1,747 to 1,430. Half of these were delayed by more than six weeks and 22 were delayed by more than a year; the mean delay stands at 75 days.
