Day-case management of hyperemesis gravidarum was introduced at the Whipps Cross University Hospital in September 2003. A prospective study of patients managed as day cases between September and December 2003 was undertaken. A total of 27 cases were managed as day cases in accordance with set criteria. All were discharged within 24 h of admission. There were no re-admissions. Patient satisfaction, assessed using a questionnaire, revealed an 88% satisfaction rate. Day-case management of hyperemesis gravidarum should be encouraged. The benefits to the patient are considerable.
