Patients do not make appointments. A Physician will place a consult for the patient. A Cardiology Nurse will contact the patient to schedule a procedure.
: After my procedure involving sedation, can I take public transportation home or a taxi instead of having someone pick me up?
No, your MUST have an escort pick you up from the hospital at discharge. If you do not have an escort arranged the day of your procedure, you will be rescheduled for a later date.
: I was told not to eat or drink anything the morning of my procedure, can I still take my medications?
Yes you can take your usual daily medication unless instructed otherwise by your physician or the nurse scheduling your procedure. Take your pill with a small amount of water only. If you have questions regarding specific medications ask your provider before the day of the procedure.
