|Pre-Op Instructions & Labs|
|PREOPERATIVE HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRES:
PreSurgery Evaluation – download form
Adult and Pediatric Health Questionnaires (also in Spanish for adults). If you can give this to your patients, it will greatly facilitate our preop calls and our admission process, avoiding delays for your surgeon. They may fax the forms to (707)528-6587 or mail to us.
A nurse from ASI will call each patient one to two days prior to surgery with preoperative instructions and a specific time to arrive for the surgery. We will provide you with a patient instruction sheet (included), but it would be very helpful if you would emphasize the following points.
Patients may not drive after surgery. Patients must arrange to be accompanied by an adult and they must have someone staying with them for the first night after surgery.
Patients must follow the instructions on their preop health questionnaire regarding eating and drinking. Patients should remain NPO after midnight, unless their surgery is scheduled after 12 noon. If scheduled after 12 noon, the patient may have CLEAR LIQUIDS only, up until 4 hours prior to their scheduled surgery time. Special instructions pertaining to Pediatric patients will be given during our preoperative phone call.
Patients are normally instructed to arrive at the center one hour prior to the scheduled time of surgery. It is important that they arrive promptly so that the preoperative preparation may be completed in time for surgery.
LAB WORK AND ECG’S:
ASI has no blanket requirement for preoperative studies. All lab work, including ECG’s, are ordered at the attending physicians discretion based upon the patient’s medical status and the scheduled surgical procedure.
If you have any questions regarding preoperative preparation of your patient, please do not hesitate to call our Administrator-Director of Nursing, Ann Hurd, RN or Dr. Gian Nhan, our Medical Director.
