The new operating theatre of the Hirslanden Clinique des Grangettes contains the latest technological equipment to guarantee an exceptional quality of surgical care.
Fully integrated operating rooms
The clinic's new operating theatre has five universal operating theatres and a recovery room. It has been designed to be fully integrated, using the latest technology: screens, cameras and lights are fully integrated into the walls, using a system of suspended arms, freeing up floor space for the surgical team. Half of today's surgeries are performed with video assistance and the latest technology has been used in this area. These larger (50m2) and more ergonomic rooms also allow permanent communication with radiology, medical IT and remote control of the various devices.
Ultra-high definition in the operating theatre
Since December 2017, the operating theatres have been equipped with 4k technology, i.e. cameras allowing the projection of ultra-high definition images.
The camera is equipped with a single-use, sterile sheath that allows for unprecedentedly precise images. The projection screens are also larger and offer the surgeon additional operating comfort and safety for his or her operations.
The Clinique des Grangettes is a pioneer in this field as it is the only establishment in Geneva to have acquired such equipment for its operating theatre.
Progress in the service of the patient
The structure of the operating theatre and the organisation of the building make patient care more efficient and comfortable. It is thus possible to monitor the patient's vital signs constantly and to control his or her condition until the patient returns to the room. The IT developments also allow for optimised management of the computerised patient file. For example, this allows information on the patient to be communicated securely and quickly to the patient's doctor. More than forty people (sterilisation staff, instrument technicians, ward assistants and a biomedical engineer) are permanently working in the operating theatre to ensure that operations run smoothly.
Sterilisation of the operating theatre certified ISO 9001: 2008
Since 2012, the Clinique des Grangettes has been involved in an ISO certification process.
This indisputable label enhances the quality of the care provided within the departments concerned and also makes it possible to distinguish the procedures put in place to offer the patient excellent care.
In 2015, the clinic obtained ISO 9001:2008 certification for the sterilisation department of the operating theatre, thus guaranteeing good practice in the reprocessing of medical devices and material vigilance.
