  1. Cancelled operations in a teaching hospital in Saudi Arabia.

    Article - En anglais

    Cancelled operations are not infrequent, can annoy patients and waste hospital resources.

    They were monitored prospectively to determine their frequency, causes and any impact of surveillance-by-objective plus in-house education.

    The study involved nine departments and was done in three phases over 47 consecutive months.

    During the study period 19 661 operations were performed and 1976 (9.1%) were cancelled, the rates in Phases 1, 2, and 3 being 11,8%, 6.7% and 6.2%. The difference between Phase 1 and Phase 2 was significant (p < 0.001) but that between Phase 2 and Phase 3 was not.

    The study was not designed to influence patients, and the frequency of cancellations they had caused remained unchanged at 2.6%, 1.8% and 1.8%.
