We will make final surgical preparations in the Day Surgery area before taking you to the operating room. Your operating room nurse will introduce him or herself, check your identification band and ask a few questions. An Anesthesiologist will speak with you and answer questions before administering your anesthetic.
Post Anesthesia Care/Recovery. After surgery, you will be taken to Recovery in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) where your vital signs (blood pressure, pulse and respiration) will be monitored. This room is designed and staffed to care for several patients at a time. You may be aware of other patients and activities going on around you.
Post-Surgery. At Longmont United Hospital we are concerned about our patients’ pain. While we may not be able to take away all of your pain, we want to make you as comfortable as possible. When pain is controlled, you will not only feel better, you may heal faster, and regain your strength back sooner. Be sure to talk with your nurses and doctors about pain control.
