On the day of your procedure or operation, you naturally kept to the agreements that were made with you in advance. You report to the Karmenta desk of the Schijndel Medical Center, at Steeg 6 in Schijndel, at the agreed time. So the same place where you went for the consultation hour. Gerard sits there and he calls the holding company in the operation complex for you to see if they are ready to prepare you for your operation. He will also record the details of the person who will collect you after your procedure in the electronic patient file. Because often you are not allowed to drive or cycle home after your procedure.
If administrative matters still need to be arranged, you can also arrange this with Gerard. You sit in the waiting room until the nurse from the holding company comes to pick you up.
ON THE HOLDING
The entrance to the OR complex is just behind the reception. First you can change in a room. You will be given surgery clothes to put on and the nurse will ask you who you are, when you were born and what surgery you are scheduled for (this will be done a few more times during your surgery). The nurse anesthetist will meet you and will discuss the planned anesthesia with you. Feel free to ask the questions you want to ask. The entire Karmenta team is focused on making you feel as comfortable as possible during your procedure. Do you want to play with your smartphone a bit, we have super fast WiFi if you log in to the WiFi network "MCS guest".
Ultimately, of course, you'll go to the operating room for your procedure and when you're done, they'll take you back to the recovery room to recover from your sedation. You return to the same nurses you had already met, and you can now also eat something. When you are a bit fresh again, the gynecologist will visit you to tell you how your procedure went.
You've probably already texted him or her, but otherwise we'll make sure that the person who comes to pick you up gets a signal to pick you up. You'll have to wait a while for the team to release you from their care at the operating complex. If special arrangements need to be made with you, we will tell you and we will also make sure that you have understood it correctly. You will receive a letter of discharge and often also information for aftercare after your operation. Sometimes you will be given medication, for example for pain relief during the evening and night.
