Abstract:According to Andringa (2018) the OR session planning within Dr. Horacio E. Oduber hospital (HOH) is suboptimal. A consequence is that there is a peak in bed demand on certain days in the surgical nursing wards. A data analysis, which is part of this research, shows for both surgical nursing wards (surgical 3 and B4) a peak in bed demand at the beginning of the week and an off-peak load during the weekend. This research was carried out within the specialism general surgery to analyze whether it is possible to optimize the OR session planning such that there is a better distribution of bed occupation during the week. We thereby arrive at the following research objective: To derive recommendations for optimizing the OR session planning within HOH such that the peaks in bed demand in the surgical nursing wards can be decreased.
