The nursing input to day surgery has become so refined that it is now a distinct speciality.
As the patient is in the hospital for such a short time the nursing rituals need to be honed to a fine art.
Pre-assessment and selection is critical and discharge planning begins before admission.
This book describes and explains the vital role the nurse plays in the multidisciplinary team.
It examines the selection process, the nurse's role in the theatre and recovery room, and the care needed on the ward.
