Patient discharge an sleep deprivation

  • 1.  Patient discharge an sleep deprivation

    Posted 10-27-2022 03:13 PM
    Hello folks!

    I need help in finding any regulation (if any) on the subject. Does anyone knows if there is anything (joint commission or other) on hospitalized patients sleep deprivation and any restriction on discharge hours.

    For example, X hospital policy is to not discharge any patient after 1:00pm.

    Thanks in advance!
