Preparing for Surgery
At East Morgan County Hospital, we understand there are a lot of details to attend to when planning for surgery. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Planning for discharge is just as important as planning for admission. We will work with the patient during their stay to meet any discharge needs. Please let us know of any concerns.
Family-Centered Patient Care
Our Surgical Care staff focuses on a proactive approach to quality patient care that includes communication and education. From the time the patient begins preparing for surgery through the time the patient is recovering, our team involves family members in discussions about care and treatment to help ease any anxiety a patient may have.
Each waiting room is beautifully furnished and decorated to create a calm and relaxing environment of care for our patients. In several of the waiting areas, visitors will find artwork that has been created by local area artists and hung by the Morgan Area Fine Arts Council.
It is likely the patient will experience some discomfort following their surgical procedure. There are many methods available to keep pain levels to an acceptable level that will allow a patient to participate in therapy and rest. Discuss these options with the surgeon and anesthesiologist and review our additional information on pain management.
