What to Expect When Recovering From Surgery

Recovering from surgery is greatly dependent upon the type of surgery you will be having. An outpatient procedure, such as hand surgery, will have a far different recovery period than an invasive inpatient procedure. Prior to discharge, it is essential that any special requirements for returning home are addressed. To assure safe and smooth travel from the facility arrange to have a Registered Nurse as a medical escort home and to provide care in the days immediately after discharge. Regular nurse visits can followup to monitor progress and to assure a full and complete recovery.
