Preparing for Surgery

Going Home

Plan on leaving the Hospital around 10:00 am. ThIs is because we need to clean your bed for the next patient. If your ride is coming later than 10:00 am, you can wait in the patient lounge.

Remember to have an adult pick you up. Once you are at home, please follow the instructions we have given you. Call your surgeon's office to make an appointment for your 'after surgery' check up. If you have any questions or concerns after your surgery, please call your surgeon's office. Know that you can always go to the nearest Emergency Department if needed.

Services available at home:

• Home Care Services (Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy) may be organized if needed. There is no charge for this service.

• Home Support may be organized for help at home with dressing, bathing, and other activities. The fee for this service is based on your income.
