Bed management is an important area of planning and control for hospitals, as it has the important role of maintaining the balance between patients from the emergency department, patients who have elective surgery or scheduled treatment, and patients who are discharged from the hospital, while maintaining high bed occupancy rates. Effective management of these resources has always been a challenge for managers. In the 1980s and 1990s, thousands of patients had operations canceled due to nonmedical reasons. Due to the constant uncertainty experienced by hospitals today, use of the cognitive model known as situation awareness has been increasing in healthcare...
