Day Surgery Routine

Temple Hospital

Immediately Before Your Surgery

  • After you check in, you’ll be taken through the double doors into the Day Surgery Unit.
  • You’ll be asked to change into a hospital gown. In most cases, the gown ties in the back.
  • You’ll be placed on a stretcher and taken to the operating room.

During Your Surgery

  • Surgery times are not always predictable.
  • We update families regarding surgery delays every hour.

After Your Surgery

  • If you’re scheduled to go home, you’ll go to the Recovery Room, and then return to Day Surgery.
  • If you’re scheduled to be admitted to the hospital, you may go to the Recovery Room and then to your assigned hospital room.
    • There are times when delays occur getting a hospital room assignment.
    • We apologize if you experience a delay.
  • Your surgeon will visit with you and your family after your surgical procedure, unless you were informed prior to surgery that you’d receive information regarding your surgery at your follow-up appointment.
  • Medications may affect your ability to recall details of conversations immediately following your surgical procedure.
