Description

A ‘delayed discharge’ is a hospital inpatient who has been judged clinically ready for discharge by the responsible clinician in consultation with all agencies involved in planning the patient’s discharge and who continues to occupy a bed beyond the ready for discharge date.

It is important that, while the clinician in charge has ultimate responsibility for the decision to discharge, the decision must be made as part of a multi-disciplinary process and focuses on the needs of the individual patient. These patients are clinically ready to move on to a more appropriate care setting either within or out with the NHS, for example patient’s home, care home.

Prior to April 2013, the national target was that no patient should be delayed in hospital for longer than 6 weeks from when they were clinically ready for discharge. From April 2013 until March 2015, the national target was that no patient should wait more than 4 weeks from when they were clinically ready for discharge. The current target, effective from April 2015 onwards, states that no patient should wait more than 2 weeks from when they are clinically ready for discharge.
