Number Of Death Are Higher In Weekend Surgery

Patients who underwent surgery during the weekend are at a higher risk of death than those done at the beginning of the week.

Researchers get the data after examining operating data collected from 2008 to 2011. This operation was planned before surgery, such as heart bypass to repair a hernia.

Of 4 million surgeries in one month, there were more than 27,000 deaths. This means that the risk of death was at 0.67%. The lowest numbers of death are those performed on Monday and then continued to increase and reached the peak at the weekend. Results showed that patients operated on Friday have a risk of death 44% higher than when operated on Monday. The high risk is likely due to the lack of quality of postoperative care on weekends.
In the first 48 hours after surgery are the most critical period, and many things can happen such as bleeding or infection. If there is no proper medical staff, this may contribute to death. The high risk of death can be caused also by the small number of doctors, nurses, and hospital staff on duty on Saturday and Sunday. If you have to have surgery on Saturday or Sunday, you should know whether hospitals provide appropriate services to treat postoperative

Previous research also shows that the risk of death in an emergency operating are higher when done by during the weekend..
