InstaPoll: Are Overnight Stays a Good Idea for ASCs?

Published: March 27, 2018

Should patients be able to stay overnight in ambulatory surgery centers? Tell us in this week's InstaPoll if you prefer loops or ties.

More than half (53%) of the 508 respondents to last week's poll prefer surgical masks with ties while one-fifth (20%) reach for surgical masks with ear loops. Many feel masks with loops aren't suited for the OR because they might not provide a secure facial fit that prevents venting at the sides of the mask.

Surgical masks with loops or ties?

  • loops 20%
  • ties 53%
  • both 27%
