Patient’s family is naturally worried and apprehensive during one’s operation. Frequent inquiries concerning patient’s operative situations have been made towards operation theatre or ward staffs by relatives, these although understandable but do create additional work load to staff, not only do they have handle the inquires, provide necessary psychological support to relatives, information concerning patient’s operative status may not be easily available to them either.
With the deployment of Smart OT system in Tin Shui Wai Hospital, real time information and monitoring of patient is available to OT staff and anesthestists.In order to alleviate the inevitable anxiety of patient’s family during operation, the service is further expanded to make patient operative status available to patient’s family.
