To help you and your family prepare for your day of surgery we have developed these Do's & Don'ts, if you require additional information please reach out to our center and our trained staff will be happy to assist you. 

DO's and DON'Ts BEFORE SURGERY DAY

  • Bring your insurance card and/or forms so our business office can bill your insurance company

  • You will sign a consent form at the time of admission. If the patient is a minor, a parent or legal guardian must sign the form and must stay at the facility until the patient is discharged. A stepparent may only sign if they have legal custody of the minor (court-issued custody documents will be required as proof). If a patient is of legal age but may not legally sign a consent due to mental capacity, a person with a court-acknowledged durable power-of-attorney for healthcare must sign the consent form. A lack of a legal guardian may result in the rescheduling of the procedure. 

  • On discharge, you will be required to have a responsible licensed driver take you home and care for you for a minimum of 4 hours. No patient will be permitted to have a procedure unless these criteria are met at the time of admission. 

  • Plan to have someone care for you at home for 4-24 hours after surgery depending on the type of surgery or anesthesia used.

  • Make a follow-up appointment when you get home.

  • If you have any questions, please call your physician or the Surgery Center at (951) 200-7777

  • Have a light dinner the evening before surgery

  • Do not eat or drink anything, including water, after midnight prior to your procedure. This includes coffee, hard candies, chewing gum, or mints. Infants under 3 years of age may have four ounces of clear liquid. four hours before surgery. You may brush your teeth or rinse your mouth
