This study presents the outcome of a survey of patient satisfaction following day surgery and an assessment of the level of contact between patients and community services within the first 48 h after discharge from a day-surgery unit.
A total of 953 patients were provided with a self-completion questionnaire after day surgery ; replies were received from 557 (58.4 per cent).
Areas investigated regarding overall satisfaction were outpatient services, admission procedure, day-surgery services, preoperative and postoperative information, and postoperative pain relief.
The incidence of contact with the hospital or community services in the 48 h after operation was also recorded.
