Department of outpatient surgery
Since January 3, 2011, the Department of outpatient surgery is organized in the City Gynecological Hospital. Since 2014, it has been reorganized in outpatient surgery beds (5 beds) in the structure of the admission department.
Outpatient surgery beds are designed to provide specialized highly qualified planned surgical care to patients who come to the admission department in accordance with the Resolution of the Ministry of Healthcare of the Republic of Belarus from 08.05.2013 N 40 «On approval of the instruction on the organization of medical care for patients with certain surgical diseases».
In the department, the patient undergoes all necessary diagnostic and treatment procedures and minor operations, in accordance with the approved protocols, on the day of admission. The patient is under the supervision of medical staff during office hours. The patient is discharged on the day of hospitalization, the time of discharge depends on the volume and complexity of the surgical intervention, as well as the type of anesthetic benefit. Upon discharge, the patient receives an epicrisis (the second copy is sent by MeDoc e-mail to a healthcare institution) and is sent home on his own.
In case of necessity of additional monitoring, treatment or examination of the patient in a hospital, it is possible to extend hospitalization for more than one day, for which reason the patient is transferred to the gynecological department of the healthcare institution "CGH".
