Description

If you are scheduled for surgery, you will be seen at our preadmission clinic a few days before the procedure. A nurse will answer your questions and schedule your preoperative examinations, where applicable.

The Admissions department will then contact you with your surgery date.

To make your stay easier, we recommend you read these tips and instructions before you arrive at the hospital.

The day before your surgery

Time of the surgery

Make sure you’re available to receive the call confirming your surgery time. We start making calls at 10 a.m. If you still haven’t received a confirmation by 3 p.m., call the operating block to find out what time you need to arrive at the hospital.

Report any change in your health condition: flu, cough, fever, cold, sore throat, urinary tract infection, skin abscess, late period (could indicate a pregnancy), or any other change.

Make sure to show up on time for your appointment; if you can’t make it, let the receptionist know at least 48 hours in advance. You will be put at the end of the waiting list, out of courtesy for the people ahead of you.

Preparing yourself, body and mind

  • Do the preparations requested by your surgeon, where applicable.
  • Since you need to be fasting, do not eat or drink anything after midnight, including liquids, water, food, gum, and cigarettes. Eat an early supper and avoid greasy foods.
  • Do not take aspirin or any medications that contain it.
  • Maintain a positive attitude and talk about your concerns with a family member or trusted friend. Get a good night’s sleep.
  • Don’t do any strenuous activity. Instead, rest, relax and take naps.
  • Take a shower or bath to clean your skin and prevent infections.
  • Follow the treatment and medications prescribed by your doctor, but pay attention to your symptoms.
  • Avoid coffee and alcohol.
  • Establish your recovery plan, including the help you’ll need with your personal hygiene, meals and housework.

Support person

Make sure a responsible person is with you on the day of the surgery and stays with you the first night.

What to pack in your suitcase

  • Your health insurance card
  • Your hospital card
  • Your usual medications, in their original containers, including over-the-counter medications and natural products
  • A robe and non-skid slippers
  • Clothing that’s easy to put on and appropriate for your type of surgery
  • Cases for your dentures, eyeglasses and contact lenses, where applicable
  • Tissues

Do not bring any jewelry or valuable items with you to the hospital.

Important

After the surgery, you will need to avoid moving around as much as possible. If the drive home is longer than an hour, arrange to stay overnight somewhere near the hospital.

If you’ve had general or regional anesthesia, you cannot drive for 24 hours after the surgery.

The day of your surgery

When you get up

  • Do not eat or drink anything.
  • Take your usual medications with a sip of water, EXCEPT for diabetes medications (e.g., Glucophage, Diabeta, etc.), medications that contain aspirin (e.g., Entrophen, Asaphen, etc.), and anticoagulants (e.g., Coumadin, etc.).
  • Take a bath or a shower. Do not apply makeup or nail polish, as this will prevent the surgeon from monitoring your skin colour during the procedure.
  • Remove jewelry, contact lenses, hair clips and body piercings.

When you get to the hospital

  • Arrive at the scheduled time at Admissions (you must be fasting), accompanied by a family member or friend.
  • When you arrive in the surgical unit, inform the nurse of any change in your health condition.

Next steps

  • The intake nurse will admit you and answer your questions, then complete the preparations for the surgery and fill out your medical record.
  • An attendant will bring you to the operating block.
  • After the surgery, you will be taken to your room, where we will take care of you until you are discharged.

For more information about the visiting hours and services offered, visit the page entitled Your stay at Hôpital Anna-Laberge

After the surgery

Your discharge

You can leave the hospital the same day as your surgery, as soon as your condition is stable. A nurse will give you the standard recommendations for your health condition and type of surgery.

Make sure you have:

  • your health insurance card and hospital card;
  • the prescriptions and recommendations from your doctor;
  • your personal medications;
  • the details of your next doctor’s appointment;
  • a number to call in case of a medical emergency.

Pain and pain killers

You will be given pain killers after the surgery. If you are in pain, don’t hesitate to tell the nursing staff. Proper pain relief is important to your recovery process. We encourage you to get up quickly to avoid postoperative complications.

Recovery

Your surgeon and the nursing staff will give you information about your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to talk to them.

If necessary, we will contact the home care team at your CLSC to arrange for you to receive postoperative care and services at home.

Description

At Hôpital Anna-Laberge, we rely on an enthusiastic, autonomous and creative team to provide quality oncology care and services to the general population. We have 15 chemotherapy chairs, and our dedicated team administers close to 4,600 chemotherapy treatments each year.

A multidisciplinary team

The team at the oncology clinic is made up of more than fifteen employees and several healthcare professionals:

  • nurses, pivot nurse, nurse clinician, all of whom are involved in the treatments;
  • oncology pharmacists and technicians, who prepare the medications; 
  • social worker;
  • nutrition and home care professionals (CLSC), who round out the service offer;
  • close collaboration with various regional organizations and partners;
  • volunteers who support the users and their loved ones;
  • spiritual care professionals who are available to the users and their loved ones;
  • nurse consultant in palliative care, who provides consultations and support for the healthcare staff in palliative and end-of-life care.

We also provide consultations in radiation therapy, although users receive the treatments at the Montreal General Hospital. The community care team (CLSC, family doctor, pharmacist, etc.) also plays a role in providing care, follow-up and support.

Dedicated nurses

The nurses administer the treatments, in particular the chemotherapy drugs, and answer users’ related questions and concerns.

The pivot nurse plays a key role on the team. They are actively involved in symptom management and, as a result, work closely with family medicine groups (FMGs), general practitioners, and pharmacists throughout the territory. The pivot nurse also assesses the needs of cancer patients and their loved ones and makes sure these needs are met through the necessary treatments and procedures. They support, assist and inform the patient and their family throughout the treatments.

Strong partnerships

In addition to close partnerships, we have agreements with the university networks that give us access to university-level expertise in support of our oncology services.

Medical services

We also provide:

  • clinics for families with hereditary cancer syndromes;
  • consultation/diagnostic services; 
  • surgical oncology services.
