Checking his success rate we see there’s only 49% a level-five doctor inherently is a 70% success rate normally they even this low-level doctor would succeed every time using glitter world medicine however smoke leaf takes a 30% consciousness penalty Christian 70 percent consciousness is applied to a 70 percent success rate to get a final result of 49% even with glitter world medicine he’ll still only succeed 78% of the time various drugs have various effects on consciousness so it’s important to check before assigning a doctor to surgery.
Make sure your pawns are assigned to use glitter world medicine before assigning them a surgery bill normally I leave my pawns on herbal medicine for day-to-day injuries it works just fine bump them up to glitter world medicine when assigning surgery and then drop them back to herbal once the surgery is complete pawns will take damage from failed surgery so if you can’t guarantee success it’s a good idea to wait until a pond recovers from any injury before signing them in operation the damage done from a failure is less likely to kill a healthy pond finally sterile tiles although a large investment can provide an additional 3% boost to surgery success rate considering the large investment required a relative effectiveness of glitter world medicine it may not be worth the cost however many players feel these silver tiles put their hospital over the edge so it might be something to consider during late-game unfortunately medical beds and vitals monitors do not affect surgery success rate in any way while they do provide a boost to treatment quality which is handy after a big fight this is for bandaging injuries rather than performing surgery this may be updated in future offices so remember when it comes to surgery always select your best doctor look at their success rate and make sure that they’re sober use your best medicine and if it’s not glitter world through the math to make sure that you’ll succeed.
