Patients at OrthoNebraska experience superior outcomes provided by physicians and staff dedicated to serving their needs. Surgical patients at our hospital have an infection rate of 0.4%. The hospital consistently exceeds state and, often times, national comparisons by hospital for the prevention of surgical infection.
Over 80% of the surgeries performed at OrthoNebraska are outpatient surgeries, meaning there is no overnight stay and the patient is on their way home a few hours after surgery. These patients will travel from the pre-op area, where they will be prepped for surgery, to their surgical suite and then finally to the post-op area to recover. Patients and their caretakers are given directions on proper care upon leaving the hospital.
For some surgeries patients are required to stay overnight. Our staff of nurses are available to care for these patients on the inpatient floor of the hospital. OrthoNebraska has 24 private inpatient rooms designed to make patients feel at home. Patients are provided with access to entertainment, dining and a comfortable place for an overnight guest.
