How to prepare for one-day surgical intervention

To prepare yourself in an appropriate way for an intervention, you need to complete the following tasks.

1. Carry out the basic examinations: blood type and RH factor, blood count, biochemistry tests: sodium, potassium, glucose, bleeding time test and coagulation blood test, ECG, CXR.

2. Consultation with an anaesthetist - a few days before an intervention, on order of a doctor responsible for the treatment or, if there is no need, on the day of an intervention, after having been admitted to hospital. A consultation is to assess the risk and patient's condition, analyse the examination results and possibly order other tests.

3. All patients waiting for the scheduled interventions should come to hospital on an empty stomach; it means that they should refrain from eating minimum 6-8 hours before an intervention.

4. It is necessary to have a valid vaccination against hepatitis B.

5. On the day of an intervention the patient should be in hospital on time, have his examination results, ID card and personal belongings (such as pyjamas, footwear and towel).

The patients operated within the contract with the Polish National Health Fund (NFZ) should have RUM (Medical Services Register) health book and the insurance card or the pensioner card as well.
