Preparing for surgery and returning home

Being adequately prepared can help ease any stress or anxieties you have about your procedure.

Preparing for surgery

We recommend patients get to know their surgeons to feel comfortable with the person who will be performing the procedure. We want to give you the opportunity to know your surgeon on a more personal level, allowing them to provide the highest level of care.


Returning home

After surgery, your physician or nurse will determine when it's appropriate for you to return home. Once you're discharged, you'll receive written instructions about caring for yourself at home, contact information for recovery questions and a time and date for a follow-up appointment.


Safe Surgery During COVID 19 at Mercy Hospital

At Mercy Hospital, our strategies have been focused on planning and prepping to safely return to routine patient care services, including procedures and surgeries. Elective, or scheduled, procedures are not the equivalent of “optional” procedures that can be delayed indefinitely – they are procedures that can be scheduled. Deferring important medical procedures can result in patients unnecessarily suffering at home, and later seeking care only when their conditions have become more serious.
