ERAS®

What is ERAS®?

The established standard of care for patients undergoing surgery, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS®) is a program rooted in taking a proactive approach to achieving enhanced surgical outcomes. By establishing an outline of best practices—including ensuring patients receive the essential clinical nutrition their body needs prior to undergoing anesthesia—ERAS® provides medical professionals a proven framework for shortening recovery periods, decreasing readmit rates, and improving surgical outcomes across the board.

How can ERAS® protocols benefit me?

ERAS® programs can yield a vast array of patient and provider benefits, including but not limited to:

  • Overall improved patient outcomes
  • Reduced incidence of post-op complications
  • Shorter length of hospital stay, fewer re-admissions
  • Lower patient care costs
  • Improved patient satisfaction scores

From the experts:
“…For patients who undergo elective surgery, it is more important than ever to implement ERAS®, given the increased importance to avoid complications, intensive care admission and to have patients in a condition to leave the hospital as soon as possible.” – ERAS® Society, April 2020

“All caregivers should know that one out of every three patients admitted to the hospital, anywhere in the world, on any service, is malnourished…and that creates a real risk for patients. They have a three times greater risk for complication, and a five times greater risk for mortality.”
– Dr. Paul Wischmeyer, Department of Anesthesiology, Duke University
