Prepare for Your Surgery
Hospital stays after surgery have become shorter. Now, more than ever, it is important for you to prepare for surgery and to take an active part in your recovery.
Once your surgery has been scheduled with Woman's, whether you are having inpatient or outpatient surgery, you will complete your preregistration form.
You or your physician's office will schedule an appointment to visit the Pre-surgery department for pre-admit education, testing and assessment before your surgery. The day of your surgery you will go to check in at Surgery to be admitted.
Remember the Basics
A few very important things that YOU can do to avoid delay or cancellation of your surgery:
- The preparation and recovery from your surgery will depend on the type of procedure you hare having done.
- Arrive on time
- Arrange for transportation to and from the hospital
- Follow instructions regarding when to stop eating and drinking before your scheduled surgery time
- Remove ALL body piercings and jewelry
