after your surgery

Discharge instructions will be given to you and your responsible adult just prior to your departure from Cascade Surgicenter. Your discharge instructions will provide specific information regarding your post-procedure care at home, as well as emergency contacts, precautions, prescriptions, and post-procedure appointments. Please note that we cannot call in most narcotic prescriptions to your pharmacy.

As a courtesy, Cascade Surgicenter will call you approximately 1-3 days after your surgery or procedure to see how you are doing and answer any questions you may have. We will leave you a message if we are unable to reach you.

After you return home – if you need a prescription refill, have a question, or need to change an appointment, please call your doctor’s office.
