Before Your Surgery
Prior to your surgery, talk with your surgeon so that you fully understand your surgical procedure. Feel free to ask questions that are important to you to relieve any concerns you may have.
Your doctor will schedule a time for your surgery and usually schedule pre-admission testing. The doctor will give you a Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) packet that includes orders relating to your surgical procedure.
Bring your PAT packet, a list of medications, allergies, and previous surgeries with you at the time of your visit.
Where does my family member wait?
While you’re having surgery, your family/support person may wait in the surgical waiting lounge. Your family will be notified when it is time to talk with the surgeon. Pagers are available in case you would like to leave the waiting area.
In your room, your family/support person can rejoin you. The nurses will be checking your blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and temperature from time to time.
Before you leave the hospital, a nurse will review your discharge instructions with you. Again, please feel free to any questions you may have.
Following discharge from Wooster Community Hospital, contact your doctor if you have any concerns.
