Day Stay and Outpatient Surgery are the similar services. Basically in hospital terms, it means having surgery or a procedure done so that a patient can be sent home within the same day. Patients need to register prior to their surgery or procedure. The most commonly asked question is: What do I bring? It's best to bring as little as possible, and no valuables please.
Patients will be given any special instructions including what to eat, clothing to wear or what to bring by their physician's office or by the hospital. Day Stay Services is located in the back left side of the hospital. As you face the hospital, go to your left around the hospital almost to the back. Look for the ramp and sign "Day Stay".
Types of surgeries include:
- Bone Marrow
- IV Therapy
- Special Procedures
