Checking In

From the 75 Francis Street entrance, go down one floor to L1 via the Amory elevators and follow the signs to the Day Surgery Unit.

Upon your arrival, please register with the secretary in the Day Surgery Patient Check-in/Family Waiting Room where family members and friends may wait during your surgery.

Before your surgery, you will meet with a registered nurse who will

  • Check your temperature, pulse, and blood pressure
  • Address any questions or concerns you have at this time
  • Ask you to change into your hospital gown

Occasionally, emergency cases arise which can cause unplanned changes in the operating room schedules. In these cases, you may experience a wait from a few minutes to several hours. These delays are unexpected and cannot be prevented. We apologize in advance for any wait you may experience and ask for your patience.
