Patients satisfaction in hair transplant surgery

Authors:
Muhammad Ahmad

J Pak Assoc Dermatol 2009;19(1):9-12.

Journal of Pakistan Association of Dermatologists

Objective To evaluate the patient's satisfaction after hair transplantation. Patients and methods The study was carried out on 100 consecutive patients undergoing hair transplant surgery. All the patients were given a detailed preoperative consultation. Hair transplants were performed using local anaesthesia with adrenaline along with a mild oral sedative. The procedure was performed under clean conditions, sterile and disposable instruments and magnification. The donor strip was harvested with patient in prone position. The closure of donor area was done using a non-absorbable suture. Postoperatively, no bandages were applied and patients began shampooing after 48 hours. The stitches were removed after 10-12 days. To assess patient satisfaction, a questionnaire was filled about the important factors pertaining to the patient experience during and after hair transplantation. Results 98% of the patients rated the consultation as 'excellent to good', 2% as 'satisfactory', and none as 'unsatisfactory'. 60% of the patients were 'anxious' during strip harvesting and 24% felt 'normal'. 74% remained 'normal' on 1 st postoperative night. 28% patients rated the overall experience as 'excellent', 38% as 'good'. Conclusion Every surgeon performing hair transplantation should publish his patients satisfaction data from time to time, so that factors should be identified which can help improve the patients satisfaction.

The Professional Medical Journal

OBJECTIVE: To study the different types of errors made in discharge slips and analyzing various reasons for that. DESIGN: Prospective study. SETTING: Surgical unit II, Bahawal Victoria Hospital, Bahawalpur. DURATION OF STUDY: From 01-02-2000 to 30-11-2000. METHODS: 566 discharge slips were presented in follow-up clinic and were analyzed. Any error in discharge slip was identified and noted and separate record of each month was kept. RESULTS:119(21%) discharge slips out of 566 contained 156 errors. These comprised 45(29%) general errors,15(10%) diagnostic errors, 33(21%) operation data errors, 19(12%) cases of insufficient clinical text,27(17%) missed complication and 17(11%) concerning follow-up. CONCLUSION: Given that all the discharge slips are currently prepared by junior staff, this study suggests that verification of the accuracy of clinical data should be made essential and user-friendly computers should be used for data collection and audit.
