Welcome to Day Surgery

LACGH offers a variety of day surgery specialities such as General Surgery, Gynecology, Urology, Plastic Surgery, Ophthalmology, and Orthopedics. 
In preparation for surgery, please note the following:
  • Bring all medications taken on a regular basis and/or any other pertinent medical information (i.e. allergies/medic alert).
  • It is extremely important that you do not eat or drink anything from midnight until you come to the Hospital. If you do eat or drink before you come to the Hospital your case will be cancelled and rebooked on another day.
  • Please remove all nail polish, make-up and jewelry before coming to the Hospital. Please leave money and valuables at home but remember to bring your Ontario Health Card.
  • On arrival at Lennox & Addington County General Hospital reception area, located across from the Emergency Department, please give your name to the Outpatient Clinic Admissions Clerk who will then direct you to the Day Surgery Unit. Clients under 16 years of age must have a legal guardian present to sign their consent. A parent may stay with their child in the Day Surgery Unit.
  • You will be given a Hospital gown to change into and you will be asked to place your clothing in a designated place.
  • Your designated driver will be notified shortly before you are discharged to come and drive you home. He/she may park at the front of the Hospital and go to the Clinic area to pick you up.
  • After your surgery you are not permitted to operate a vehicle for 24 hours as some of the medications you received during your procedure may have been narcotics and these affect you the same way alcohol would. You should have an adult remain with you over night.
  • Follow the instructions that you were given regarding a recheck visit with your surgeon/physician
  • If you have any concerns during your stay, please mention them to the nursing staff.
  • Should you feel that you have a problem that requires immediate assistance, please telephone your doctor and if he/she is not available proceed to the Emergency Department at your local Hospital.
