Day of Surgery

When you arrive at the hospital you will check at the Admitting Department. There they will take your health card and go over all of your personal information. You will then be told to go to Day Surgery. Once you are at Day Surgery, they will make sure all of your paperwork has been completed and you have signed your consent form. You will then be asked to remove all clothing from the waist up.

They will supply you with a plastic bag for your belongings or you can bring your own. They will take your vital signs, temperature, blood pressure etc. and check over your medical history. You will get several eye drops put into your eye. You will then be placed on a bed and have a cap put over your hair. You are now ready to go into the operating room. Once in the Operating room, the nurse may start an IV and the doctor is ready to start the procedure.
