Learn about this interesting study that used a process evaluation methodology. The aim was to examine the effectiveness of implementing same day discharge (SDD) following percutaneous coronary intervention. During implementation, 22 patients were discharged home the same day. It was found, however, that staff did not follow the guideline consistently, with an overall adherence of 77.3%. The study is important as it provides direction for future improvement both in the criteria and implementation process. After watching this video, be sure to read the article.
