If you need to stay with us overnight after your surgery, you’ll be taken straight to your private inpatient room after your post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) stay. Your family members can wait in your room for you to arrive and visit with you. Each room has its own bathroom, television, and direct phone number. Our staff will treat like treat you like family.
What to bring
Clothes: Choose comfortable, loose fitting clothes, so you can slip them over your surgical dressings. Button up or zip up shirts will be the easiest to take on and off. The bottoms should also be easy to put on; we recommend sweat pants.
Shoes: For some procedures, such as a total knee or hip replacement, it’s important to get you walking the day after your surgery. You’ll want to have some safe, non-skid walking shoes, so you don’t slip or fall.
Other items: Bring your toiletries and anything else that will make your stay with us as comfortable as possible.
Your family will be able to visit you after your surgery. Ask for their help to bring in anything you may have forgotten.
