In recent years, day surgery has developed rapidly in China. It is very important to ensure the medical quality and safety of day surgery patients post-discharge. However, there are no regulations, guidelines or policy on the quality and safety of medical care post-discharge in China yet. As one of the medical institutions which are the earliest to carry out day surgery in a standardized way in China, West China Hospital of Sichuan University has summarized the nearly 10 years’ experiences in day surgery, and formulated management norms after discharge of day surgery, including discharge evaluation, discharge guidance, follow-up after discharge, and emergency plan. This paper introduces the management norms for day surgery post-discharge from West China Hospital ofSichuan University, in order to provide reference for the management of the day surgery patients post-discharge medical care in China.
日间手术改变了传统的住院流程，使得患者在 24 h 内完成住院、手术、出院成为可能，这也促使日间手术管理模式进行变革。日间手术患者术后住院观察恢复时间较短，更多的是出院后康复。日间手术患者出院评估、出院指导、出院后随访以及应急预案等整个管理流程化、规范化，不仅促进了患者术后快速康复、早日回归社会，也是保障患者术后医疗质量和安全的重要举措。华西医院日间手术出院后管理规范的经验总结，对国内日间手术专业领域发展具有巨大的推动作用，也对全国日间手术相关规范、指南的制定具有重要的借鉴意义。当然，本规范也有一定局限性，需要全国多中心、更大样本而且使用循证医学证据等研究方法进一步探讨。
