Short Stay Unit Provides Same-Day Surgery and Personal Attention
Thanks to evolving surgical technologies, more and more surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis, without a hospital stay. This allows patients to spend less time in the hospital and more time at home.
At Olympic Medical’s Short Stay Unit, over one-half of our surgical patients can go home the same day as their procedures. The friendly, competent staff in the Short Stay Unit welcome patients and ensure all admitting paperwork and lab work is handled smoothly with your concerns in mind. Our nurses provide individualized patient education so our patients fully understand what to expect before, during and after the procedure, as well as giving tips for making home-based recovery faster and more comfortable.
Surgical patients who require an overnight hospital stay may conveniently visit Short Stay up to five days before their procedure to complete the nursing assessment, lab work and patient education ahead of time.
Short Stay also treats patients on a same-day basis for endoscopic procedures, chemotherapy, pain blocks, blood transfusions or IV antibiotic treatments.
