POST-OPERATIVE

Directly after your surgery or procedure, you will be taken to the recovery room, where you will be kept until you are fully awake. Your blood pressure, heart rate and the blood oxygen saturation will be monitored to ensure that they are stable and that it is safe for you to be discharged to the ward. The recovery personnel must also ensure that you are comfortable, that your pain is bearable and that you are not nauseous. From here, you will be discharged to the ward or to a high care unit where the qualified and caring nursing staff will continue the care initiated in the recovery room.

We seldom work in the same hospital on consecutive days, which means that we rarely see you the day after surgery. Should you have any concerns, uncertainties, questions or complaints please don’t hesitate to contact us via any of the supplied methods.
