After Your Procedure

  • When you are ready to go home, we will assist you with standing and possibly dressing to avoid falls.

    them carefully.
  • You MUST have a responsible adult drive you home or accompany you if you are using another means of transportation.
  • Plan to have someone remain with you through the first night after your procedure.
  • Please do not drive, operate machinery or make important decisions for the first 24 hours after your procedure.
  • You will receive a call from one of our nurses in the days following your procedure to ensure you are
    recuperating appropriately. 
  • Contact your physician with questions and concerns.
    • In an EMERGENCY - call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if you are unable to reach your physician and feel your symptoms require immediate care.
    • To reach a physician immediately, you can also use BayCare Anywhere.
