Allgemeinchirurg (für) Tageschirurgie (ambulante Chirurgie)

Nach Einsicht in die entsprechenden englischsprachigen Sites kann man sagen, dass "open care" (im Gegensatz zur closed care) in etwa der deutschen Tageschirurgie oder der ambulanten Chirurgie entspricht. Wie eine der folgenden Sites zeigt, ist dabei wesentlich, dass der Patient während seines (zeitweiligen) Aufenthaltes in der Chirurgie weiter der Oberaufsicht seines Allgemeinarztes unterliegt und nicht voll in die Intensivchirurgie überwiesen wird also eine kurzfristige und wohl leichtere Behandlung.

Open ICU model—An ICU in which patients are admitted under the care of an internist, family physician, surgeon or other primary attending of record, with intensivists available providing expertise via elective consultation. Intensivists may play a de facto primary role in the management of some patients, but only within the discretion of the attending-of-record
Closed ICU model—An ICU in which patients admitted to the ICU are transferred to the care of an intensivist assigned to the ICU on a full-time basis. Generally, patients are accepted to the ICU only after approval/evaluation by the intensivist. For periods typically ranging from one week to one month at a time, the intensivist's clinical duties predominantly consist of caring for patients in the ICU, with no concurrent outpatient responsibilities.

Kann aber auch eine \"Tagesklinik\" oder so was sein wie z. B. hier:


Ich selbst würde aber eher auf \"Ambulanz\" im Gegensatz zur \"stationären Behandlung\" tippen.

Offene Fürsorge

Hängt natürlich von Deinem Kontext ab.

Meine Gedanke dazu:

Es gibt das Konzept der "open care". Bedürftige, Kranke etc. müssen dadurch z.B. nicht direkt in ein Krankenhaus sondern werden Dank der Offenen Fürsorge unterstützt.

Im Internet findest Du diverse Seiten

Hier noch eine bessere Erklärung:

Arbeitsstruktur und Arbeitsmethoden der Wohlfahrtssverbände:

geschlossene Fürsorge durch stationäre Betreuung in Krankenhäusern, Erziehungs- und Altersheimen, Heil- und Pflegeanstalten

halboffene Fürsorge in Kindergärten, Horten, Jugendheimen, Alterstagesstätten

offene Fürsorge in ambulanten Hilfen der GEA; Telefonseelsorge, Bahnhofsmission; Beratungsstellen

neutral  Ivo Lang: Der Begriff wird, wie die Sites zeigen, hauptsächlich in der Sozialfürsorge und Psychiatrie verwendet, also sind Missverständnisse vorprogrammiert.
