Advances in medical treatment now allow for many surgical and
diagnostic procedures to be done on an outpatient basis.
Rather than staying overnight in the hospital, you can now go
home and recover in the comfort of familiar surroundings.
To keep you safe, you cannot drive yourself home or be home alone
through the evening and morning following your surgery.
If you are unable to have a friend or family member drive you
home and stay with you, you can either:
- Reschedule your surgery until someone is available to help in
- Take advantage of the post procedure patient care services
available in this area.
