Ambulatory Care (Surgical Day Case Unit)

A surgical day case is a patient who is admitted for an operation on a planned non-resident basis who still requires facilities for recovery. The whole procedure should not require an overnight stay in a hospital bed.

Day surgery poses the least possible disruptions to the everyday life of the patient as they return home the same day as the surgical procedure.Advantages of day surgery include the shortening the separation time from family members, diminished anxiety, and the possibility of recovery in a familiar setting, as well as:

  • Facilitating speedier recovery
  • Better outcomes as patients follow an evidence-based pathway of care
  • The reduced risk of patients contracting hospital acquired infections as generally there are lower infection rates in day case units
  • Patient satisfaction is high

Common procedures appropriate for Day Case or Ambulatory Care are routine and common surgical procedures such as surgery for cataracts, hernias, varicose veins, and hand conditions although many more procedures can be performed in Day Case Units if the patients are prepared adequately.
