Surgery

Preparation For Surgery

In order to be submitted for a surgical procedure your body has to be as clean as possible and for that reason it is important to bathe well.  You cannot use nail polish or make up. All this must be removed before you can be admitted to surgery. 

You must also remove all fake nails and jewelry. Before surgery, you will receive an injection as preparation for your surgery. After you receive the injection you are not permitted get off the bed anymore. 

Process for Admission to Surgery

The prescreening Department will give you a questionnaire to fill in and a nurse will help you. After that you will get an appointment to visit the anesthetist. 

On the day of your appointment the anesthetist will once again go through the questionnaire with you. If everything is ok, you will be admitted on the date specified by your specialist.

Pre-Screening

For your own security you will have to do a pre-screeing before sugery. Five (5) days before sugery you must come by for your pre-screening appointment.

Note:
It is your responsibility to do the pre-screening. If you do not pass the screening or if you do not come on time, this may result in your date for your surgery being changed.
