AbstractBackground: In a hospital a properly structured operation theatre is a dynamic and essential part. In order to accommodate patients, it is important to meet the requirements of surgeons and operational theatre personnel and to demonstrate a well-functioning operational theatre and excellent management. Improving the role and efficacy of an operation theatre in such a hospital, where health services and administration continue to change constantly, has often been a challenging and daring practice. A significant cause of excessive use of operating room time and a waste of money is late cancellation of planned operations. It is also potentially traumatic with depressing consequences and expensive for the patient in terms of missed working days and everyday life interruption. In order to analyze the time usage and most common causes of delays and cancellations of scheduled surgeries in AVBRH, the current analysis will be carried out.
