Load Leveling in an Emergency Department
This is a video preview of a ED simulation model used by Lean Six Sigma trainers. This model examines the impact of leveling patient arrivals. It also examines where the true bottlenecks are and experiment with different numbers of beds.
Unshared vs Shared Queue Hospital
This is a model of two Hospital Inpatient Units where one unit is broken into pods and the other is not. It shows the impact of RNs being able to help one another meet patient demand.
The impact of travel time and other trade-offs are discussed, as well as possible hybrid scenarios.
