What to Bring

  • Bring a picture ID, insurance cards and items needed to pay your insurance deductible/copay.
  • Bring a current list of your home medications and vitamins with you, indicating the last date/time you took them. Please use our printable medication list. Do NOT bring your home medications with you. For your safety, we will dispense medicine to you.
  • Because you will have anesthesia/sedation, you will not be able to drive yourself home. You will need a responsible adult driver to take you home after your surgery/procedure.
  • If you wear glasses, please bring an eyeglass case. Do not wear contacts on the day of your surgery/procedure.
  • If you wear dentures and/or hearing aids, please bring a container for them.
  • A parent of legal guardian must accompany a minor.
  • For the safety of your loved ones, do not bring children with you. There are no facilities or personnel to provide supervision.
  • Bring your polar care (cold pack) with you as advised by your surgeon.
  • If you have sleep apnea, bring your CPAP/BiPAP machine with you the day of surgery, along with distilled water.
  • Wear loose, comfortable (appropriate) clothing that can be easily folded and placed in a bag. These items will be labeled with your name and returned to you prior to discharge.

Personal items will be given to your family member just prior to surgery. Therefore, it is important that your family member be available before you go to surgery.

Do NOT bring any valuables to the hospital, with the exception of cash and/or a credit card for your payment the day of surgery.

Do NOT bring any jewelry to the hospital. All jewelry must be removed or your surgery could be canceled. This includes wedding bands, watches, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and ankle bracelets. All body piercing jewelry must also be removed.
