Modernisation of the technical platform

To make sure patients are treated in complete safety, the ergonomics of operating rooms is paramount. In 2015, ophthalmology redesigned two rooms by optimising the positioning of each party present (patient, doctors, nurses, mobile equipment) and by modernising equipment (computerised anaesthetic machines, surgical lighting with video system, microscopes, and so on.).

Improving patient welcome and enhancing relations

Patient satisfaction is a priority for the HUG. Achieving this not only relies on the quality of care provided, but also respect for the individual and their needs. Employees strive to give every single patient a level of welcome and care that is worthy of their expectations.

Chatting and being kept informed are among patients' legitimate expectations of their caregivers. This takes time; time which can be spared by establishing a better balance of activities.
