Abstract
The purpose of this research is to examine the medical management process of placing and monitoring active duty fleet enlisted personnel in a temporary medical duty status and its impact on fleet readiness. Due to the variety of medical categories this research focuses primarily on personnel placed in Temporary Limited Duty and Medical Hold. Personnel in medical status "limbo" decrease readiness and cost the Navy millions of personnel dollars each year. The study highlights improvements in communication, education and training at all levels of the organization based on observations from the fleet and medical communities. This research is intended to provide stakeholders with a matrix for decision-making and provide guidance on the various temporary medical status categories and recommends design changes to the current Temporary Limited Duty Process.
