Surgery Center of Oradell

Patient care at its best

After Your Surgery

When your procedure is over, you will be taken to the recovery area, where you
will be monitored. As the anesthesia wears off, you may be re-joined by a family
member or escort. You will be offered a beverage and a light snack. After you are
fully recovered you will be able to return home.

Before you leave the Surgery Center of Oradell, you will be given written discharge
instructions which will be reviewed with you by a nurse.

After you have returned home, be sure to follow your doctor's orders regarding
diet, rest, medication and activity. Unless directed otherwise, you should start your
diet with clear liquids and gradually add other foods to your diet. It is not unusual
to feel a little sleepy, light headed or dizzy for several hours after your procedure.

Do not sign any important papers or make any significant decisions for at least 24
hours.

You will be given a patient survey asking for your feedback about your experience
at the Surgery Center of Oradell. Please complete and return the survey, as your
comments help us to continually improve the service we provide to patients.

A nurse from the Surgery Center of Oradell will contact you by phone the next
working day after your surgery.

Please do not drive a car, smoke, drink alcoholic beverages, or operate machinery
or exercise for 24 hours after surgery.

If you have any questions or problems after surgery, refer to your discharge instructions, contact your doctor directly, or if you have an emergency,
proceed to your nearest hospital.
