Preparing for surgery

The Pre-Op Interview

New Britain General campus

One to three days before your procedure, a nurse will conduct a phone interview with you. Please have handy a list of all current medications, including dosages, and any pertinent medical or surgical history.

You may designate a family member to give this information. The 10- to 15-minute pre-op interview is conducted between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Arrival times cannot be given until the day before your procedure due to last-minute schedule changes. The interview nurse will give your arrival time or tell you how to obtain that information. Arrival times vary between 6 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
