ADMISSION TO THE INPATIENT UNIT
If an overnight or extended stay is needed, you will be moved to a private suite on the second or third floor of the hospital. You will meet your inpatient nurse and receive around the clock personalized care by our highly trained staff. You will be provided with medication to treat and prevent post-operative pain and nausea. Early ambulation is encouraged to prevent post-operative complications.
We ask that you bring all your home medications in their original prescription bottles the day of surgery. The nurse will ask you for these medications and will administer them to you per your doctor's order. Your medications will be stored at the nurses station and returned to you at discharge.
While we encourage support from family and friends, it is very important that you, the patient, get an adequate amount of rest following surgery. We ask that your room remains calm and quiet during your convalescence.
Sleep accommodations will be provided for one family member or guest who wishes to stay with you. A light breakfast will be served to your family member or guest who stays with you overnight.
At Fairway Medical we believe you should not only feel cared for, but cared about. Fairway Medical offers an environment for recovery unlike any other. Our inpatient unit consists of beautifully decorated private suites that include chair/beds that comfortably accommodate caregivers and are outfitted with televisions and VCR/DVD players. We have in-house chef who will prepare your meals based on your dietary needs. Special request can be accommodated.
