Description

If you are scheduled for surgery, Admissions will contact you with the date of your preadmission appointment and the date of your 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.

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. If your surgery is scheduled for the morning, arrive at 6:45 a.m. If it’s scheduled for the afternoon, arrive at 12 p.m.

Report any change in your health condition to the preadmission nurse: 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 preadmission department know (ext. 2150) at least 48 hours in advance.

Preparing yourself, body and mind

  • Do the preparations requested by your surgeon, where applicable.
  • Since you need to be fasting, follow the instructions given during the preadmission appointment (recommendations about medications, eating and drinking).
  • 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.
  • 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 the ones indicated by the preadmission nurse.
  • 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 in Day Surgery (you must be fasting), accompanied by a family member or friend.
  • When you arrive, inform the nurse of any change in your health condition.

Next steps

  • The Day Surgery 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 Day Surgery or to your room, where we will take care of you until you are discharged.

After the surgery

Your discharge

  • 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;

Description

The day hospital provides access to diagnostic tests and treatments that require the use of the hospital’s technical platform, as well as follow-up by a multidisciplinary team for outpatients who would otherwise require a hospital stay. The treatments, diagnostic tests, and patient teaching and follow-up are usually scheduled over a one-day period but can be spread out over several days or weekly sessions. 

The medical acts performed at the day hospital are intended to avoid hospitalizations or to decrease the length of hospital stays. This allows for more efficient and judicious use of the short-term care beds and helps to relieve Emergency department overcrowding.

How it works

  • The worker who makes the appointment informs the user and the other departments concerned about the date and time of the appointment.
  • On the day of the appointment, the user must go to the day hospital reception desk (in the basement of the Harfang des Neiges room), where they will be registered, and the relevant information and instructions will be forwarded.
  • Remember to bring enough meals and snacks to last you for the duration of your treatment.

Description

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that causes your breathing to stop repeatedly while you sleep. These breathing pauses or “apneas” usually last 10 to 30 seconds and can happen many times throughout the night. 

Snoring by itself doesn’t necessarily mean that you have sleep apnea. It is true that loud snoring is common in people with this disorder, but there’s a big difference between simple snoring and sleep apnea.

With a prescription from a doctor, the sleep laboratory can diagnose sleep apnea, manage users with the disorder, and provide appropriate treatment.

At Hôpital du Suroît, we rely on an enthusiastic, autonomous and creative team to provide quality oncology care and services to the general population. We have 12 chemotherapy chairs, and our dedicated team administers close to 4,300 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 and 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.
