Bearing in mind the wellbeing of the patients whose hospital stay can be shortened, in 2004 we created Day care Department. This ward has two rooms: one with two and one with three beds and there are four beds in a Supervision Room after endoscopy procedures. A patient stays from a few hours up to 24 hours in Day care Department. Adults and children with local anaesthesia after procedures/operations in general surgery, urology, gynaecology, laryngology, plastic surgery and ophthalmology are hospitalized there.
There is also endoscopy room where such examinations as gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy are performed. At the patient’s request and when there are not contraindications, these procedures can be performed under short-term general anaesthesia. Because we know how stressful hospital stay can be, our youngest patients can stay with their family throughout the whole period after the operation.
