Following Your Procedure:
Once the procedure is complete, patients go the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) where monitoring is conducted by skilled Registered Nurses. When ready, patients are offered light liquids and visitors may join you.
Please limit the number of family/friends you bring with you to the Center. We allow one visitor 14 years of age or older to wait with the patient prior to your procedure. One visitor over the age of 14 years old will be allowed in the Post-Operative area after the Procedure. If the patient is a child both parents will be allowed in the Pre-Op and Post-Operative areas.
Prior to being discharged, each patient and accompanying adult is given instructions on proper follow-up care. A Registered Nurse from Madison Surgery Center will telephone after your surgery to check on your progress.
