Ready to hone your surgical skills? Let’s get started with our Operate Now: Hospital tips and tricks guide!
1. Upgrade the Break Room as soon as possible!
We know you’re going to be swamped with new facility costs and the training packs will only make that worse, but you should set aside some extra cash to save for the Break Room. The Break Room is the backbone of your hospital, and a stock Break Room will make you fall behind very quickly if once you start hiring a lot more staff members.
Upgrading the Break Room will give it one more slot letting multiple staff recover their stamina at once. Early on it’s okay to keep using the default one as you won’t have many staff members yet, but you’ll need to upgrade as soon as you can.
2. Always go for the Premium packs!
The Training Packs have training cards inside them that allow you to level up your staff. The regular Training Pack costs 8,000 cash and the premium one costs 40 golden hearts. The regular one has 10 random cards of one type, while the premium one can net you up to 100 cards of one type, with a minimum of 40.
While you can buy the regular pack if you’re really hurting for cards, we think that cash can be better spent on new facilities and upgrades.
The regular Recruitment can net you either a normal or silver rarity staff member, and it costs a whopping 60,000 cash. The Premium Recruitment has either silver or gold staff members in it and costs 120 golden hearts.
This one is a no-brainer – that massive amount of cash can also be put towards facility upgrades, like the aforementioned Break Room upgrade! Since golden hearts can only be used for these premium packs, speeding up tasks, or on consumables, we think this is the best way to spend them.
While you can sometimes earn golden hearts from completing certain tasks, your main source of them will be from the advertisements. You can opt to watch an advertisement in the shop for five golden hearts. You can do this twice every five or so hours.
3. Speed run the operations!
At the end of an operation, you are graded on three different factors: the patient’s remaining vitals, the time remaining, and any mistakes you made, if any. This score is then multiplied by a number equal to the operation’s difficulty.
The harder operations have a better multiplier. Getting high scores nets you more reputation for your hospital, so you’ll want to do the operations as fast as you can without making any mistakes. Swiftly but surely as they always say! Here are some tips.
- Making incisions with the scalpel can be done quickly but you can’t think about it – just do it! After applying the gel, select the scalpel and smoothly draw out a quick line in one go. Once you get the hang of it speed incisions will be natural to you!
- Suturing with the needle is done faster if you make long sutures. Long sutures cover up more of the wound, adding more to the percentage completion. Smaller sutures only add a little bit.
- You don’t need to memorize exactly where each bone fragment goes during broken bone segments. As long as you place the fragment in the general area of where it was extracted from, it’ll automatically slide into place.
4. Keep cycling out your staff members!
Keep an eye on the staff’s stamina levels. You can see what state their in by the color of the ring around them. When staff members drop below 75% stamina, their stamina ring will turn yellow and below 25% it’ll turn red.
This doesn’t seem to affect their efficiency for their currently assigned task, but if you let it drop all the way they will automatically be ejected from their current task. This can be pretty bad in certain situations so it’s very important that you’re always cycling out resting members and active members into the break room. Don’t neglect your hard working nurses and staff!
