Whole-of-hospital response to admission access block: the need for a clinical revolution

Published online: 15 March 2010

To the Editor: The Journal took a significant step forward in publishing the three articles on access block in the 6 April 2009 issue.1-4 Walters and Dawson’s viewpoint article,4 in a later issue, touches on some ideas that will be useful in finding solutions to access block — ideas that some hospitals are implementing. However, I am not sure a microsolution aimed purely at acute medical patients can be called a whole-of-hospital revolution.
