Day Before Surgery

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Please check the time you need to arrive. Our staff will give you this information during your pre-operative visit or phone call.

If there is a change in your physical condition, such as a cold or flu, please notify your physician or call the pre-operative staff at the Surgery Center.

Please make arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you home after surgery and to stay with you overnight. If you are receiving local anesthesia, you may drive yourself home after you are fully recovered from your procedure.

Please ask your family members not to wear perfumes or cologne to the surgical unit.

DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED.

Please take/stop your medications as instructed by your pre-operative testing nurse.

Do not drink alcoholic beverages for 24 hours before surgery.

Please shower tonight and don’t forget to use your Hibiclens if instructed to do so by the preoperative testing nurse.

If instructed by your pre-operative testing nurse please be sure to remove all your nail polish, makeup, and jewelry before you come in tomorrow.
