Data collection of complication Data collection for infections Quality rating questionnaire Follow up Information leaflet for day surgery Meetings with nursing staff. METHODS: The study was carried out by comparing data from the period 2003-2006. The activity of general surgery includes: general, breast, plastic and vascular. From 2003 to 2006 day surgery activity increased considerably, partly due to good organization and partly because it has been favourably received by the population. RESULTS: During the period 2003-2006, 1835 operations were carried out in day surgery. The percentage of operations in D.
