The authors present an account on statistical data of the patients’ profile at the ENTdepartment in the Frýdek-Místek hospital as regards selected surgical operations -adenotomies,tonsillectomies and septoplastic operations. 75 % of the operated patients are admitted on the dayof the operation which is more demanding for the department than admission on the day precedingsurgery. In 1994 the mean period of treatment was 5,13 days, in 1998 (January till July) 2,52 days,the bed occupancy declined from 79,3 % in 1994 to 62,95 % in 1998.Shorter hospitalization and the shift of treatment to the domestic environment is accepted positivelyby the patients. It seems desirable to elaborate standards for short-term and one-day surgery whichwill ensure safety of these operations and will comprise medical as well as social factors.

Key words:
time of treatment, short-term surgery, one-day surgery.
