The study was conducted on a total of 146 patients who cancelled planned surgeries at a University Hospital located in Daejeon for one year from Jan., 1 to Dec., 31, 2007 with the purpose of minimizing cancellation ratio of planned surgeries and thereby improving hospital management reasonably and raising service satisfaction. Participants in this study consisted of 56.8% of male patients and 43.2% of female patients, with a higher proportion of female than male patients. The causes of cancelled planned surgeries were classified into controllable and uncontrollable cases. 60.0% of the cases that cancelled planned surgeries were classified into controllable cases based on the classification of surgical risk. From these findings, the study proposes that researchers and hospital managers establish policy directions to reduce and improve surgery cancellation ratio.
