When should I arrive at the hospital for surgery?

You should arrive 1 ½ hours before surgery time to go through admissions, change into hospital clothing, meet the anesthesiologist and nursing personnel and address any questions about the procedure. Do not eat or drink after 9:00 pm the night before your surgery. You may be allowed to take pre-approved medication with the least amount of water necessary. Report any medication taken, along with dosage, to your admitting nurse.
