Join us as Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences student Candy Carrillo speaks about improving patient satisfaction, perioperative care outcomes, and promoting home discharge at POD1 through the implementation and execution of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) methods in Total Joint Replacement (TJR) surgeries at Emanate Health.
“Orthopedic surgery, particularly Total Joint Replacement, remains one the most common ambulatory and surgical procedures in the nation, due to the rapid rise in the aging population. The high demand for such surgical procedures can place patient outcome at risk and as well cause a monetary burden to the healthcare system. The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary approach designed to target the factors that delay postoperative recovery, shortening hospital stays, accelerate patient recovery rates, and improving patient satisfaction. This project aims to analyze and evaluate the current ERAS methods implemented for orthopedic surgery at Emanate Health. The study will focus on the various perioperative steps and further discuss what should be directed and improved in order to reach full patient satisfaction and safe recovery rates.”
