it resulted in a dangerous abscess requiring further surgery to remove the abscess and then long term, debilitating antibiotics tx . Is this commonplace? and How safe are these push thru surgical facilities?
Its like anything else, some are better then others. They do have to do routine testing for bacteria in operating rooms. But it is so easy to get an infection with surgery.There are quite a few ways bacteria can get into an operative site. I'm old school and don't approve of anything but the minor stuff being done and having the patient go home. There was a reason people were admitted to a hospital at least for a day or two where it could be monitored.
