Evaluation of benefits related to reduced length of stays in postanesthesia care units.
The study's purpose was to estimate the potential economic benefit of the optimization of postanesthesia care units (PACUs).
A simulation model was designed and used to test the economic impact of a reduction of length of stay.
For the studied PACU, a reduction of 25% of length of stay is required to yield significant economic results.
