Risk management in outpatient surgery
Publication date: Available online 13 June 2019Source: Journal of Visceral SurgeryAuthor(s): A. Theissen, K. Slim, A. Deleuze, M. BeaussierSummaryOutpatient surgery has become a national policy priority set by health care authorities (targets for more than 70% of outpatient procedures by 2022), making ambulatory hospitalization the new standard of care. This practice introduces new risks along the patient's course. Even though these risks are low and although the literature and data from insurance databases is reassuring, the risks in outpatient surgery remain poorly understood. Risks can be organizational in view of the m...

Presence of anesthesiologists and nurses in the operating room: Liability of surgeons and health care facilities
This article provides an overview on the legislation and recommendations on this topic and recounts some of the related jurisprudence. The opinions of various actors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, anesthesiology-intensive care physicians, certified registered nurse anesthesiologists, care-facility directors and insurance companies are included. Based on these elements, we attempt to answer the question of presence of competence in anesthesiology in the operating room. (Source: Journal of Visceral Surgery)

Operating room communication in robotic surgery: Place, modalities and evolution of a safe system of interaction
ConclusionWith immersion, the surgeon unconsciously loses non-verbal exchange and becomes cut off from his surgical environment. The assistant is the one who perceives feelings of isolation most acutely. Therefore, interaction and communication must be verbal, systematic and safe. Systematic verbal communication should be reinforced during the training phase and continued thereafter although it could become more relaxed as experience increases.

ConclusionOnce gallstones have become symptomatic and caused hospital admission, a persisting high risk for future readmission exists and half of patients end up having cholecystectomy. Pain in the epigastrium, larger gallstones, and younger age determine readmission. These determinants should be tested in future clinical treatment algorithms for gallstone disease.
