Same Day Surgery
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.
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.
