Enter the total time (hrs) and the patient care time (hrs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Fallow Time. 

Fallow Time Formula

FT  = TT - PCT


  • FT is the Fallow Time (hrs)
  • TT is the total time (hrs)
  • PCT is the patient care time (hrs)

To calculate Fallow Time, subtract the patient care time from the total time.

How to Calculate Fallow Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Fallow Time.

  1. First, determine the total time (hrs). 
  2. Next, determine the patient care time (hrs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = FT = TT – PCT.
  4. Finally, calculate the Fallow Time.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total time (hrs) = 20

patient care time (hrs) = 15
