Who should come with me to the hospital?

Outpatient/Ambulatory surgery: If you are scheduled as an outpatient, you need to have an adult with you that will be responsible for your care at home for the first 24 hours after surgery. Your companion will need to be able to drive you home. You are not allowed to leave alone, nor take a taxi home.  For further information regarding outpatient surgery, refer to the link below.

Inpatient surgery: If you are scheduled to stay in the hospital overnight, you may come alone to the hospital. However, arrange transportation in advance. You will need an adult to drive you home and take care of you for at least 24 hours after you are discharged.
