How to Prepare for Surgery

Thank you for choosing Neshoba County General Hospital.  We want you to know that patient safety, comfort and satisfaction come first. You may also be required to complete some lab work, perhaps have an x-ray, follow a special diet, shower with a special soap, etc.  Again, your NCGH surgical coordinator will provide you with precise detail on what time to arrive at the hospital on the day of surgery.

Day of your Surgical Procedure

Upon arrival for surgery, simply stop by the front registration desk and finalize any remaining registration paperwork and then you and your family member or significant other will be escorted to the surgery area.  At this time, your coordinator and the pre-op nursing team will take over, helping to prepare you and make sure that you are as comfortable as can be.  You can expect that your vital signs will be taken and a nurse will start an IV (Intravenous Therapy administering liquid substances directly into a vein).  From here, the anesthesia provider will meet with you to discuss the anesthesia procedures.  It is very important to discuss any past reaction to anesthetics or concerns you have at this time. Next, your surgeon will greet you and make sure that any remaining questions you have about your procedure are answered. 
 
It's very important that you remove any dentures/partials, jewelry, and contact lenses/glasses. 

After the Surgical Procedure

After surgery, your doctor will meet with the family (if authorized by the patient) and discuss the outcomes.  The patient will be transferred to the Post Anesthesia Recovery area.  Here, a recovery nurse will attend to your needs and administer medication as ordered by the surgeon for pain.  Once fully awake and recovered from surgery, you may be transferred back to the same area you were in prior to entering surgery, reunited with your family and discharged home or admitted to the in-patient floor as applicable.  If discharged home, you will receive detailed instructions on proper diet, activity, pain control, dressing care, when to follow-up with your doctor, and information on possible side effects.

If at any time you have a question about your surgery or any concerns about how you're feeling, remember, we are here for you.
