The stay in the One day surgical
What happens after my operation and prior to my discharge?
After the operation, you will spend some time in the recovery room. You will then be taken back to your room where you will spend a few hours recovering.
What happens when I am discharged?
The conditions necessary to return home are:
- having drunk and eaten (a meal is served at the unit);
- having gotten up and having urinated;
- Wait to see the surgeon and/or assistant who hands out prescriptions, arranges appointments, provides certificates etc.
At home, you are not left to your own device: a hotline at the emergency ward of the St-Elisabeth site is available to you at this number 02-614 29 00. If needed, the emergency ward will contact all doctors who were involved in your surgical procedure.
The following day, the administrative unit of the One Day Clinic will call you to check on you.
