Surgery recovery - Orthopedics  Empty Surgery recovery - Orthopedics

Sat Jun 13, 2020 6:10 am
Hi

How long it takes to a patient recovery from orthopedic surgery? Most of the surgeries are from arm and leg fracture. I ask this because my infirmary and semi-intensive care unit are full of patients recovering from surgery and a few waiting for it, and it's causing delays in my poly-trauma units. The patients arrive there and after treatment, most of them need orthopedic surgery, but cant be transferred to orthopedics because there are no beds available.

Thinking of it, I suggest to add a patient discharge forecast somewhere, maybe in the patient table.

wow! Uhh, "infirmary?" "poly-trauma" "semi-intensive care," I've never heard of these depts in game. Are you playing with mods? I only have: Reg ward; HDU; ICU; Trauma (and observation, though I don't really call that a dept).

I'm translating from Portuguese to English using google. I don't know the actual names in English.
Reg ward; HDU; ICU - I have no idea what are those. Trauma I know what it means, it's where patients come by ambulance, right?

Ahh! I was wondering, and yet very curious too! Yes, when ambulance patients are dropped off it's to the trauma dept.

I'm not an English speaker either, so I'm not sure how they would appear in the English text in the game, but it's good enough to guess.
First of all, I will write the connection between the two terms here.

Reg ward=infirmary / HDU=semi-intensive care ...It is a hospital room for inpatients belonging to each department. HDU is intended for more severely ill patients.
ICU... an advanced room for the most critically ill patients, in other words those who are unconscious in the hospital. This will be treated as an independent department. (It's the red mark with a waveform!)
Trauma (or TC)=poly-trauma... yes, that's the room you am going to go first in an ambulance, as you say!

And you seem to say that the orthopedic room is full and you can't transfer patients with TC to the orthopedic room.

First of all, how many patients a day need surgery in your hospital?
Depending on the number of patients who need surgery, construct an operating room as appropriate,
You need to hire a “surgery team” (I call the surgeon, anesthesiologist, surgery assistant and two nurses together).
In addition, there must be enough room for an X-ray room to identify the fracture site. Are there enough rooms and technicians?

If the examination and surgery are done smoothly, the patient will be discharged within 2 days at the latest.
How much room you actually need depends on which mode you are playing in.

If you are playing in Challenge Mode, you will need more rooms in addition to the rooms that were built from the beginning.
Fixed to all patients who do not need surgery coming to the emergency department (marked by the red rotating light) or to orthopedics,
This is because the work load in all rooms increases as the number of patients increases each day.

If you are playing in sandbox mode, you should open up more departments.
The total number of patients in the hospital is spread out by the number of departments, preventing extreme work concentration in a particular department.
