For some procedures, you may be admitted to the hospital prior to the day the procedure takes place.
If you are already in the hospital on the morning of surgery:
- You will be awakened early enough to wash and change into a hospital gown;
- You also may receive medication that will make you drowsy and relaxed. Do not try to get up without help after these injections.
Please note that although you will have a scheduled time for your surgery, emergencies or other issues could cause that time to change.
