Surgery at St. Vincent's Medical Center, Bridgeport CT

The Day Of Surgery

Patients are asked to go straight to the Admitting Office on the day of surgery. The Admitting clerk will verify your hospital information and direct you to the Short Stay Center.

Your nurse in Short Stay will obtain a “Nursing History” from you. She will assist you in getting ready. There you will change into a hospital gown. Your belongings will be sent to your room after surgery.

Your surgeon will see you in the pre-operative area before your surgery. He/she will contact a family member or person chosen by you after the surgery. After you are fully prepared for surgery, you will be taken to the Operating Room. The Anesthesiologist will start an intravenous (IV) line in a vein in your arm to give you fluids and answer any questions you may have.

St. Vincent's Medicial Center: Surgical expertise when you need it most.
