Definition of day surgery in English:
Minor surgery that does not require the patient to stay in hospital overnight.
- It is also hoped the hospital will be able to offer more day surgery rather than admitting patients for overnight stays when they have operations.
- Many interventions can be delivered through day surgery rather than lengthy hospital stays.
- The findings of this study are not generalizable to all patients undergoing same day surgery because only a limited number of surgical procedures and a small patient sample were used.
