Pre-Operative Holding Area

From the waiting room you will be brought back to a changing area to get into a hospital gown and have your belongings secured. After being placed on a cart in the pre-operative holding area, you will be asked questions about your medical history. You will notice that there are some questions that get asked several times by different health care team members; these questions are for your safety during the surgical process. Once all questions have been asked, two family members can sit with you until you go to surgery.
