Same-Day Surgery - (619) 470-4321
With Paradise Valley Hospital's Same Day Surgery unit, the special
needs of many surgery patients may be met in one day, with personal attention
and lower prices than inpatient surgery. Consider these advantages in
Selecting Same Day Surgery in preference to inpatient surgery:
Paradise Valley Hospital offers the protective back-up with the full services
of an acute care hospital. We are a
Top 100 Hospital in the nation and the only San Diego hospital to be recognized as a
Top Performer in Key Quality Measures four years in a row.
The Same Day Surgery unit is conveniently located on the hospital's
main floor near the admitting office, laboratory, X-ray, surgery and emergency services.
Personal Attention by Caring Professionals
Patients are escorted to the comfortable, home-like atmosphere of the Same
Day Surgery unit where a caring, professional nurse assists the patient
to prepare for surgery. The Same Day Surgery nurse and the nurse from
surgery are available to answer any questions the patient may have as
well as to provide calm reassurance.
After the surgical procedure is performed in the adjoining surgical suite,
the patient is taken to the post-anesthesia care unit until awake. The
patient then returns to the relaxing atmosphere, low lights and soft music
of the Same Day Surgery unit to recline for an hour or so.
Family members are able to keep in constant contact with the surgical nurse
by carrying a beeper with them if they leave the Same Day Surgery waiting room.
When the patient is able to return home, the nurse reviews follow-up instructions
and gives a folder of helpful materials and written instructions to the
patient, who is then discharged to recuperate in the familiar surroundings of home.
The services provided through Paradise Valley Hospital's Same Day Surgery
unit reflect the heritage of caring at this not-for-profit Christian institution.
