What to Bring Your Day of Surgery

Description

Are you preparing for your day of surgery and not sure what to bring? We recommend you pack a comfortable pair of shoes, loose clothing, medications, your pre-operative packet, and your driver's license. These items can help make your post-surgical experience as convenient and comfortable as possible.

First and foremost, have a bag ready with all your essentials. Have a comfortable pair of shoes that are easy to put on for the nursing staff and for yourself. You want to bring a loose article of clothing, like a house coat, a robe, or very lose pajamas that have zippers or buttons on the front so that you can be dressed after surgery without moving your arms or with minimal disturbance of dressing and drains. Next it's important that you bring all your medication. This includes your home prescription medications and the medications we provide, placing them in a Ziploc bag so it will help the nurses identify the medications you are on and which ones you need to be taking. Next we want you to bring your pre- operative packet. It should be in a folder as such and should have essential information about your surgery and post-operative course. Finally, make sure that you bring your driver's license. A form of identification is important to prove your identity prior to surgery.
