We preform approximately 6,000 cases per year. OSMH is committed to patient safety and utilize the surgical safety checklist prior to the procedure and again at the end.

Post Anesthetic Care Unit (PACU) & Day Surgery
Following surgery patients are transferred to the PACU for recovery. Patients will be closely monitored by Registered Nurses until awake and comfortable and will be transferred to either C5 inpatient unit or to the Day Surgery department. During this transition patients will be asked to participate in the transfer of care between the nursing staff.
While in the Day Surgery Department area patients are continued to be monitored and will receive post-operative education and any prescriptions if required.
The Endoscopy unit operates Monday to Friday and is located in the Surgical Services department. The department sees more than 3,000 patients each year.
Medical Device Reprocessing Department (MDRD)
The Medical Device Reprocessing Department is responsible for the high level disinfection and sterilization of medical devices which covers Endoscopy, Cystology and MDRD. The trained Surgical Services technicians follow the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards to ensure patient safety.
OSMH has approximately 20 surgical beds that include care for orthopedic rehab. The inpatient surgical unit has an inter-professional team approach to surgical care. There is a high focus on pain management, mobility and patient education.
