Day of Surgery

On the day of surgery, report to the admissions desk. Please arrive at the hospital two hours before the scheduled time of surgery. It is important that you arrive on time.

You should expect to stay at the hospital for two to four hours after your surgery is completed.

Patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. One parent must be in the hospital at all times, even when the child is in surgery or recovery. Please make child care arrangements for other children.

All patients will be asked to sign a consent form when admitted. When surgery is to be performed on a minor, the consent form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian who is present at the time of admission.

Discharge instructions will be provided for your post-surgery care prior to being discharged. You will receive a follow up phone call from one of our staff members a few days after your surgery.
