Many people have found that Outpatient Services East is an excellent facility to have their same-day surgery needs meet. You receive the same quality of care you would expect in a full service hospital but are able to return to your own home to recover.
With the new advances in technology, anesthesia methods, and how pain is managed, many surgeries are now able to be done as outpatient. Over the past three decades outpatient surgery has become a popular choice for many patients. The staff at Outpatient Services East is abreast of these advances and is there to give you the best possible care.
The type of surgical procedure, anesthesia, and the patient’s medical history will determine how long they will stay at the outpatient facility. Your stay may be a few hours up to twenty three hours. You will be monitored and may need to demonstrate a few simple tasks before you are allowed to go home. You may be asked to drink some fluids and eat some food without getting sick to your stomach. In some cases, it will be important that you are able to pass urine as well.
You will be required to bring a responsible adult with you the day of your surgery. As you will be given anesthesia you will not be able to drive for 24 hours. It is a good plan to have someone with you that can stay with you for at least 24 hours. He/she will need to stay during your surgery and be there for the doctor to the results with as you may not be fully awake for a few hours.
Space is limited so we ask that you have no more than two people with you. We ask that no children be brought with you and that no one comes with you who may be sick. There is no place for food to be prepared at Outpatient Services East but vending machines are available if your caregiver and visitor need food or drink.
