Your Admission and Stay

Information for Surgery Patients

In order to ensure the best possible surgical outcomes, we screen our surgery patients prior to their procedures. In addition, surgery arrival times, pre-procedure instructions and individualized aftercare plans are provided to each patient.

St. Charles Health System is a Joint Commission accredited facility and we base our standards of care on those set forth by several professional organizations including the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the Association of PeriOperative Registered Nurses (AORN).

Our Pre-Surgery Clinic nurses work in conjunction with anesthesiologists and other medical providers to medically clear patients prior to their surgery. In addition to pre-surgical screening, our nurses provide individualized pre-procedure instructions as well as arrival times along with our scheduling team. After your surgery you will receive discharge instructions that provide you with follow-up care specific to your individual needs and type of procedure performed.
