Night Shift Surgery Empty Night Shift Surgery

on Tue Nov 06, 2018 1:11 am
I was wondering if it is possible to have surgery done on patients during the night-shift? Have a bit of a backlog of ones that need surgery and was wondering if they can be taken care of at night with the right doctors or I would have to expand my daytime surgery staff so they can do more than one a time?

I have seen one operation per night carried out. I seemed to have to have four nurses and four doctors - the surgeon, the gas-passer, the surgery nurse, one other nurse to look after patients and two for carrying patients around only, and two doctors to take turns taking breaks and working in the diagnostics rooms. Then an operation occurred. Very satisfying. Very Happy

well, i dont know if it was an bug or planed but i ones saw the daytime shift doctors making a surgery in the middle of the night ... not just 9 pm but 4am or something ... but in big hospitals i often have the general surgery department fitted with a nightshift of sureons etc. it works fine if you have the personal Smile and the bills in the morning ... satisfying Smile

I definitely recommend having a night shift surgery team for your surgery department. I have had it happen that during the night patients came into the ER with ruptured organs and I had no surgery team and they went into septic shock.
You probably don't need a night shift surgery team for orthopedics, those patients won't collapse if their broken bones have to wait a little.

The only reason to avoid night shift surgery is that it gives your patients a rough night negative modifier if they get woken up. But that is only a weak negative modifier so I usually use night shift to wrap up a lot of symptom related treatments and don't care if the patients get woken up. Especially since if you give them some painkillers they won't care about some negative modifiers.
