Same Day Care and Endoscopy

Thank you for choosing Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital for your outpatient surgery. Same Day Care is located near the front hospital entrance, north of the main corridor.

Our goal is to make your preparation, care and recovery a smooth and quality experience.

 


Preparation

Please pre-register prior to your scheduled surgery date. You may do this in person or by mail. Please also have your insurance information available. You may be contacted by the preregistration staff to obtain additional information and arrange for copayments to be paid prior to your scheduled surgery.

You may have lab, X-rays or other pre-op orders that should also be done prior to your scheduled surgery date.

You will receive a phone call from the Same Day Care staff on the day before your surgery. They will review instructions and give you a time to arrive at the hospital.

 


Care and recovery

Generally, you will be asked to arrive one hour prior to your scheduled procedure. Recovery time for surgical patients will vary, depending on the procedure. Recovery time for endoscopy patients will usually be about an hour, but it may vary.

You and your family will be given self-care instructions which are important to follow.

It is very important that you make arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you home after your procedure. It is also important to have them stay with you for at least a few hours.
