Surgery at BGH

Are you booked for a surgical procedure at a QHC hospital?  If so, a COVID-19 test is required by all patients within 2-3 days of your procedure. With COVID-19 cases increasing in our community, this test will ensure your safety, the safety of other patients, and the safety of the health care team. You will receive a call from the COVID-19 assessment centre to book your swab. The swab must be completed 2-3 days before your surgical date. If you have not received a call 3 days before your surgery please call 613-961-5544.

Day Surgery (patients can go home the same day as the surgery):

Day surgery patients can expect to be at the hospital for a period of 3 to 6 hours. Family members are welcome to wait in the waiting room. Alternately, they can provide a phone contact if they choose to leave the hospital. When you are ready for discharge, a nurse will contact your family member and instruct them to wait for you (in their vehicle) outside the Sills entrance.

Please remember that family members are not to leave their vehicle unattended at the Sills entrance. Patients will be portered to the Sills entrance to be picked up.

Admission after surgery (patients require a hospital stay after the surgery): 

If a patient is being admitted to the hospital following surgery, the family member will be instructed to meet the patient on Quinte 6 following the procedure. Please click here for a patient guide for admission surgery.
