Figure 1: Treatment slot allocation and consequence of delay. The numbers in the inner yellow ring indicate the chronology of patient. (a) An example treatment slot allocation “Before rules.” (b) The consequence of delay in the treatment of patients “Before Rules.” The delayed arrival of the 2nd patient on the day resulted in chain of events which lead to delay of >20 min for the last patient [refer Appendix A for individual patient details]. (c) An example treatment slot allocation “After rules.” And (d) The consequence of delay in the treatment of patients “After rules.” It can be noted that the buffer slots are negating the effects of delay at the end of every hour
