What to Expect

Rutland Regional is committed to providing nothing but the most advanced, personalized care to each patient. Both inpatient and outpatient surgical patients can expect:

A Pre-Surgery Confirmation Call. You will receive a call the afternoon or evening before your scheduled surgery to inform or remind you of your arrival time.

On the Day of Your Surgical Procedure:

  • A receptionist will greet you.
  • Staff will direct you to the appropriate surgery area, where you will be prepped for your procedure. Generally, one or two loved ones can wait with you.
  • If your family is waiting at the hospital, they will be directed to the surgical waiting room. Loved ones can also leave a cell phone or pager number. The surgeon will speak with family members after the procedure is complete.
  • Outpatients are brought to the hospital’s Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU) to be joined by family until they are ready to go home.
  • After spending the needed time in Recovery, inpatients are brought to a nursing unit and family members notified of what room and bed you’re in.

A surgical advocate staffs both the Ambulatory Care Unit reception and surgery waiting areas to ensure that family members’ questions are answered and surgery-related needs are met.
