Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: A multidisciplinary team evaluated breast patients undergoing axillary dissections and mastectomies, targeting improved practice and decreased hospital length of stay. A sample of 831 patients (284 axillary dissections, 318 unilateral mastectomies with reconstruction, 219 without reconstruction) participated between July 2009 and July 2010. Participating departments developed a plan to support breast patients in this endeavor. Results showed percentatge of patients discharged same-day post axillary dissections increased from 5% to 90%. Patients discharged post-op, day-1 increased from 4% to 83% for unilateral mastectomies with reconstruction and from 17% to 83% in non-reconstructed patients. There was no observed increase in readmissions or patient complaints.
