The patient’s physical, psychological and social needs are assessed initially on the Ambulatory Care or Surgical In- Patient Units and are reassessed on admission to the Pre-Op Holding Area, with a plan of care developed and revised as necessary. Intra and post-operatively, the patient is continually reassessed. Modifications to that plan of care are based on reassessment of the patient. In the immediate postoperative phase, the patient is under the direct supervision of the Anesthesiologist who maintains responsibility for the needs of the patient until the patient has been appropriately discharged from the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) or High Dependency Unit (HDU) or Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Disposition of the patient from the PACU/HDU/ICU is based on the complexity of the patient’s care needs. This decision is made collaboratively between the Anesthesiologist and Surgeon, with information related to clinical data provided by the PACU/HDU/ICU staff.
Depending on the type of surgery, patient will receive rehabilitation services depending on the Surgical Team’s recommendations, patient will be evaluated by concerned therapy services prior and post-surgery aiming for maximum functional regain.
Why do you need to come here at SBAHC?
Our care team is made up of many dedicated people who will work with you to make your stay at our hospital pleasant. Our goal is to provide our patients with highest quality of surgical care possible.
How can we make you comfortable with us?
Our pre-operative review/visit activity is one of the roles of a staff in which we aim to meet you on one-on-one to interact, assess, educate, and establish a rapport with you and your family, prior to surgery. It consists of three main parts: Surgical assessment, Care during surgery, & Post-operative education and evaluation
All patients must have testing before surgery. This will assess if you are medically able to tolerate surgery. The testing will be scheduled through us and needs to be done at least 2 weeks before your surgery. Pre-admission testing will include a review of your medical history, laboratory and radiographic or X-ray exams as well as ECG if applicable.
You will most likely be admitted under our care a day before or on the day of your surgery. After admission, you will be evaluated by a member of the anaesthesia team to determine which type of anaesthesia will be best for you.
YOUR STAY IN THE HOSPITAL
After surgery, you will be moved to the recovery room, where you will remain for one to two hours while your recovery from anesthesia is monitored. After you awaken, you will be taken to your own room.
You will most likely stay with us for several days. After surgery, you will feel some pain, but medication will be given to you to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Early ambulation is important to your recovery.
MANAGING YOUR PAIN
Your comfort is important to us so we will be asking you to communicate to us about your pain. With medications, and other comfort measures, we will be able to achieve your pain management goal.
