Once your surgery date is scheduled and you have pre-registered, the pre-admission screening office will mail you an appointment to meet with the anesthesia nurse practitioner and the pre-op nurse. Your surgeon may decide that a phone call appointment will take care of this instead. In that case, a pre-admission nurse will call you about one week before your surgery.

At this time a nurse will ask you about:

  • Name, doses, and times of your medications (this includes aspirin, herbal medication, and inhalers)
  • Allergies
  • Health problems and past surgeries
  • History of anesthesia complications or post op nausea
