Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I still take my medications if instructed not to eat or drink anything after midnight?
Medications will be reviewed with a nurse during your pre-operative nursing history prior to the day of surgery/procedure. The nurse will instruct you on which medications can be taken on the day of surgery.
Do I need someone to drive me home?
Yes, due to the anesthesia medications you received during your procedure. If you are not having any anesthesia medications during your procedure, you may be allowed to drive home. Please discuss this possibility with the nurse at LCSC.
When will I know what time to arrive for my procedure/surgery?
You will be notified of your arrival time on the day prior to your scheduled procedure.
Why do you wait until the day before to give out arrival times?
To avoid confusion if the surgery schedule needs to be changed by the physician or we have a cancellation.
Patients may have to be rearranged according to age (children first), health status (diabetics), and/or procedure being performed.
Patients being transported by any public transportation will need to notify LCSC staff so arrangements can be made ahead of time. Patients also need someone to come with them.
Can I go back with my child to the OR for their procedure?
No. For safety concerns, it is the policy of LCSC that only employees, physicians, or students be present in the OR/procedure rooms. Employees with family members undergoing surgery are reassigned to other rooms as well.
