This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Waiting for diagnostic test results can triple the average length of hospital stays, reveals a study by the Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu hospital in San Sebastian, Spain. Head of the hospital's quality control unit, Amaya Hernando, recommends better co-ordination between the clinical laboratories and hospital departments to reduce result time and that only essential tests should be carried out. The aim of the study was to determine the main factors involved in excessive hospital stays, including surgical complications and nosocomial diseases, says a report in Diario Medico.
