winniemih help: surgery and anesthesia (25) RE: help: surgery and anesthesia 26 Jan 02

I work as a nurse in a Day Surgery unit. You have the right as a patient to informed consent before any procedure,including the administration af anesthesia used during surgery. This is considered separate from the surgery itself. What this means is, you should have the opportunity to discuss your options with the anesthesiologist doing your case, and agree with his/her plan once you have heard all the options. If you do not get this information and give your verbal consent it is a violation of your rights. Usually (where I work, anyway) this happens just prior to surgery, as you wait in the holding area. Good luck with your surgery, and I hope you are up and walking without pain soon. Winnie
