Due to the state of the COVID-19 pandemic, people all over the world are reasonably cautious when it comes to visiting hospital settings. These environments are typically a hotbed of viral activity, making it dangerous for high-risk individuals. Of course, you also don’t want infection to be a component of your plastic surgery procedure! But, you may be surprised at how surgical suites have eliminated many of these dangers. Below, we’ll take at some of the benefits they offer in today’s environment.
The primary defense against coronavirus is sanitizing facilities as much as possible. With a hospital, this can be particularly difficult, because people are actively using the building at all hours of the day. There is little opportunity to provide deep cleaning. With a surgical suite, nobody stays overnight – patients or staff. This means that surgical suites can be cleaned on a more regular basis, and therefore, may be a safer environment for both patients and their providers.
Hospitals are high-traffic environments. Even though many hospitals are taking measures to reduce visitors and in-person visits, they are still some of the busiest facilities in America. With every additional person, there is an added element of risk and exposure. Surgical suites are typically part of a smaller facility. With fewer staff, fewer visitors and fewer patients throughout the day, there is far less risk of being exposed to the virus.
Privacy & Care
In addition to the benefits above, patients visiting a surgical suite get much more privacy and attention during their visit. First and foremost, this translates to a more personal and intimate relationship with the medical staff, which can help a patient feel more comfortable and often leads to a more successful treatment. With the attention that the staff provides, patients can also enjoy better access to their doctor and other team members following their surgery.
