Outpatient Lap Chole

  1. What are your criteria for discharge of the Lap Chole patient from an outpatient setting? We use the PRS scale but are not getting specific postop orders re: amount of time to keep in phase 2 recovery. We feel uncomfortable discharging these patients after 1 or 2 hours, even if they meet the PRS score required, just doesn't seem like a long enough observation time for that type of surgery. Any help out there?
