Prior to your surgery, we ask that you:
- Complete your pre-admission screening
- Take a screening test for Covid-19
You may receive a call from a Providence Surgery Center nurse to review your health history and plans for recovery. The nurse will also provide specific instructions to help you prepare for your surgery. If you missed the call or need to reach a pre-admission nurse before your surgery, please call 425-258-7456.
One or two business days before your surgery you may also receive a call from our team to confirm your surgery and your check-in time and answer any last-minute questions.
Here are a few additional things to keep in mind:
You will receive instructions from the Providence Surgery Center on when to discontinue food and liquids before your procedure. Be sure to follow these instructions to avoid rescheduling your surgery. Do not consume alcohol or marijuana 24 hours prior to your procedure, and do not smoke, vape or use tobacco products after midnight the night before your procedure.
Confirm with your physician if you need to stop taking any medications, such as blood thinners or insulin, prior to surgery.
You must have an adult friend or family member accompany you to and from First Hill Surgery Center. You may not drive yourself home, take a taxi alone or walk to the bus. You should not drive during the first 24 hours after your surgery.
On the day of your surgery, you should bathe or shower and avoid wearing all makeup, lotions or perfumes. You may be instructed to bathe with a special soap before your arrival at the surgery center. Please remove all jewelry, including wedding rings and any body piercings, before your arrival. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing like jogging or yoga pants, a bigger t-shirt or sweatshirt.
During your recovery time you will be monitored by our nursing team in one of our post-operative rooms. Our nurses and care team will work closely with the surgeon and anesthesia provider to monitor you and plan your discharge from Providence Surgery Center. Our goal is to get you home as soon as possible while making certain that you are medically safe to leave. You may very well feel like you could sleep for a few hours or that you are being rushed out of the surgery center, but experience has shown that you will feel most comfortable at home, sleeping in your own bed.
Please do not drive, operate machinery, sign legal documents, consume alcohol or take any medications not prescribed or recommended by your physician. You should have a family member or friend stay with you during the first 24 hours after surgery to help and support your recovery.
If you have questions about your prescriptions or healing and recovery, please contact your surgeon or primary care physician. Your doctors are the best source of information about your ongoing health and recovery after surgery. They can work with you on your overall care plan.
Your surgeon’s office will work directly with you to schedule any post-surgical care. Those appointments will be in your provider’s office, not at Providence Surgery Center - Pacific Campus.
