DAY CARE SURGERIES / PROCEDURES
Day Care surgeries are for patients who require a surgical procedure without an overnight admission to the hospital. There are many advantages to a Day Care admission:
THE DAY OF YOUR SURGERY:
Leave all money and valuables at home (including jewellery and keys). Take a shower or bath before you come to the hospital. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Remove all make-up and nail polish. For those patients being discharged home post-operatively a family member or friend must be available to take you home after your procedure. It is important to share all medical information with the Surgical Day Care Unit nurse (i.e.: reaction to medication, anaesthesia, difficulty hearing).
