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:

  • Less time spent in the hospital
  • Less time lost at work
  • The ability to return to a familiar setting for your recovery

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, anesthesia, difficulty hearing).
