BACH offers many surgical services that can be completed within one workday that do not require the patient to stay overnight. All same day surgery procedures are scheduled through the specialty clinics.
Patients should call Same Day Surgery the day prior to surgery, from 2 to 4 p.m. to receive their arrival time for surgery. The staff members in Same Day Surgery are there to facilitate a smooth and safe experience for the patient and their Family members. Your procedure will be verified by the nursing staff, anesthesia staff and the surgeon. You will go into the operating room from your Same Day Surgery Room. Depending on the type of anesthesia, you may return to the Same Day Surgery room. Some patients go to the recovery room and then return to Same Day Surgery to prepare for discharge.
