What happens during the Pre-Op Assessment?
In your pre-op assessment you will meet with an Ambulatory Care Unit nurse and have pre-op tests done that your doctor has ordered for you. The pre-op assessment allows the RN time to focus on evaluating and communicating your anesthesia-related needs, and on helping to prepare you emotionally and physically for your surgical experience.
It is important we get an accurate list of all the medications you take, so at this time we will go over your current medications. Please bring all medications in their original bottles.
Your consent forms will be reviewed, and we will discuss your post-operative needs.
Why Should I Have a Pre-Op Assessment?
Having a pre-op assessment helps save time on the day of surgery, it helps prevent delays and cancellations, and helps you prepare for your hospital visit.
Gives you time to discuss the procedure and expectations with a nurse so you may get any questions you have answered. Gives us an opportunity to learn about you and prepare for your need.
