Prerequisites for an outpatient operation

For safety reasons an outpatient operation is not possible with every patient. Even if the operation can be carried out on an outpatient basis, accompanying diseases can increase the individual risk, in that case the treatment should better be performed stationary. Furthermore, for an outpatient surgery the patient should be able reach the clinic at any time. If it is not possible, e.g. because of a great distance from the apartment to the clinic, the safety prevails. Also, social circumstances, e.g. if there are no relatives, who can assist the patient in case of emergency, must be taken into account. In rare cases, something would happen during the originally outpatient surgery that it would demand the patient not to go home immediately. This may occur, for example, due to problems with anesthesia, bleeding or some unexpected states of health.
