Inpatient Surgery Units
Our surgical units have patients at all stages of recovery. Patients are admitted post-operatively from the post anesthetics care unit (PACU) and also from the emergency room. Patient care is prioritized based on the patient's condition.
If you need the nurse, please use the handheld call bell. Your call will be answered promptly and the nurse will respond as soon as possible. Urgent and emergency situations with other patients may prevent your nurse from responding to your call immediately.
When Will I See My Doctor?
Many patients and families ask when the doctor will be making rounds. Each day their visit may be at a different time depending on your doctor’s schedules. We suggest that you write down questions for your doctor so that you can make the most of your time together, or communicate with staff or physician by using your white boards located in your room. In an urgent matter, your nurse can contact your doctor or the doctor on-call as necessary.
A team of cleaners is responsible for cleaning rooms and the nursing unit. The nurses will straighten or change your bed as needed. The surgery units have chosen to make an environmental commitment in an effort to conserve energy and water and would appreciate your help. If you can re-use your towels or facecloths please hang them on the towel racks in your room. Otherwise the staff will replace your linens as needed.
Suggested Personal Items To Bring With You
- Facial Tissues (Kleenex®)
Please be careful with your dentures and glasses as the hospital is not responsible for lost items.
Personal Items to Leave At Home
- Large amounts of money
- Jewelry and items of sentimental value
Visiting on the Surgery Units
Family is defined as whomever the patient would consider family.
There may be instances when the nurses will ask visitors to step out of the room while providing nursing care. We understand that this may be inconvenient for you and your visitors but we are sensitive to the needs and privacy of all our patients. Under special circumstances it can be discussed with the Nurse Manager or delegate if there is a family request to stay overnight.
Children are welcome to visit on the units when the family deems that their visit would be of benefit to either the patient or the child. Please remember that the hospital environment can be hazardous to young children and thus it is important that the children are under close adult supervision at all times.
For your convenience there is a patient and family lounge.
Discharge time is 0800 a.m. Please make arrangements with your family to pick you up at this time. This is necessary to prepare the room for the next patient. The team will be happy to help facilitate any special arrangements you may need, including home care.
Did You Remember To...?
- Make arrangements for someone to take you home
- Ensure you have been given instructions about your treatment, medication and/or convalescent care, from your physician or nurse.
- Take home prescriptions and any other medications you brought with you
- Make arrangements for any required post-hospital care
- Make note of any follow-up appointment you have been given
- Check to be sure you have collected all your personal belongings
