Your physician(s) will determine when you are ready to be discharged from the center. A nurse will review the discharge plans with you and your responsible caregiver at this time. We will provide a written copy of the discharge instructions which includes items such as: physical and activity restrictions, if any; information regarding medication you are to take after discharge; and other special instructions that your doctor wishes you to have. If you have any questions after your discharge, call your physician.
A nurse from the surgery center will call you at home the day following your procedure to see how you are doing. If you have a procedure on Friday you will be called the following Monday. It is important for us to know how you are feeling and progressing after your procedure.
