Preparing for surgery
When you are scheduled for a procedure, you will be given a folder that
contains information about your surgery and the necessary steps that you
will need to complete before your procedure. The folder includes forms
for your primary healthcare provider to fill out during a pre-surgical
physical, 'Hibiclens' soap packets to wash with the night and
morning before your procedure, and additional information to help you prepare.
One to two days prior to your scheduled procedure, a representative from
the surgical department will call to inform you of your arrival time on
the day of surgery. When you arrive, the surgical staff will obtain a
health history, fill out consent forms with you, perform necessary skin/site
preparations, possibly start an IV, and administer any medications you
may need before surgery. This will be done in the privacy of your own room.
It may be necessary for you to complete lab work and/or imaging studies
after you register for your procedure. The registration representative
will inform you of any needed testing, and direct you to where you need
to go to receive the tests you need.
