On the day of surgery, please report to the registration area located on the 2nd floor in the hospital – Community Regional Outpatient and Surgical Services. Once you are taken to the pre-operative area, you will be given a hospital gown to wear. All clothing and other valuables will be given to your family members or the person who accompanies you. If you are unaccompanied, please tell your nurse, who can have your items locked up prior to surgery.
A nurse will talk with you and your loved ones and tell you what to expect. You will most likely feel a little nervous before surgery. The hospital staff will do all they can to answer your questions and help you relax. Once you are taken to the operating room, your friends and family members will be escorted to the surgery waiting room. After your surgery the doctor will go to the waiting room to talk with your family and friends.
