Sammanfattning (abstract):
The purpose of this study was to examine nursing practice in day surgery settings in Sweden. A questionnaire focusing on the routines of the day surgery process of patients in Sweden was administered. Based on these findings, appropriate nursing interventions are outlined and discussed. Day surgery routines were in accordance with general worldwide practice. The study revealed that nursing involvement was rare in the preoperative routine. In addition, the major part of the recovery process, including assessments of discharge eligibility and information about pain management, was managed by PACU nurses. The nurse follow-up revealed a number of subjective queries and symptoms that, in a seemingly easy way, could have been prevented by further perianesthesia/perioperative patient education. There is an obvious place for nursing interventions when the decision for day surgery is taken. These interventions should focus on providing the patient with information before surgery, preoperative patient health screening, and information/education at discharge. Furthermore, nursing interventions should include quality assurance, such as follow-up calls for the evaluation of care, as well as providing information and coaching for the patient at home.
