After Surgery

  1. Each patient must be accompanied by a responsible adult for discharge home.

  2. Remember to take the discharge instructions, given to you by your nurse, home with you.

  3. Be sure to ask your physician if you will need home care following discharge. If you have needs or concerns in addressing your post-operative plan, please speak with your physician's office. Also, see the list of community-based resources on the next page.

  4. Prescriptions given to you as you leave our hospitals may be filled at the pharmacy of your choice. At Holy Cross Hospital, you may have them filled at the hospital's outpatient pharmacy located on the first floor. The outpatient pharmacy at Holy Cross Hospital is open from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday and Sunday (closed on major holidays). Most prescription plans are honored. Most major credit cards are accepted.
