The Week Before Surgery

Make the following arrangements during the week leading up to your surgery:

  • Outpatients must have an adult readily available to drive them home after surgery and be with them for 24 hours after surgery.
  • If you are ill the week before your procedure, contact your physician.

Visitors & Support People

To promote privacy and rest, please bring only one adult support person/driver with you. If the patient is a child, both parents may be present. Children under 14 years of age may visit patients, provided the nursing staff is notified of their presence and an adult accompanies them at all times. Anyone with an infection, communicable disease or recent exposure may not visit.
