We have several elective cases that end up being scheduled at 1600 or sometimes even later if we have a very busy day. If you were to have to have surgery, would you allow your surgeon to scedule you that late in the day, when he/she has obviously been up early doing rounds, and other surgeries and who knows what else. Do you think a surgeon is operating at 100% later in the day? Just wondering.
I don't think I would want a Lap Chole done or anything elective that late, only if it were a true emergency and I might die if I didn't have the surgery. I wonder why people say "okay" when they are called and told that they are scheduled in the afternoon.
