You are encouraged to take an active role in your care, patient education, discharge planning and recovery. If at any time you have questions, please ask.
Do not bring any valuables with you, as Sauk Prairie Healthcare will not be responsible for the loss, theft or damage of any valuables, including jewelry.
Your surgeon will speak to family members/ caregivers (or whomever you choose) after surgery. Please work with the Surgery Center staff to make sure they are available and do not miss this important time with the surgeon.
If you have had sedation, please make arrangements for someone to drive you home. You cannot be discharged without a responsible adult. If you choose a taxi or other public transportation you will still need someone to accompany you home.
