Ambulatory Surgery Unit (ASU)
The UVMC Ambulatory Surgery Unit (ASU) provides care for patients having surgery and other invasive procedures including interventional radiology, cardiac catheterization, and outpatient blood transfusions. We care for all patients, from infants to adults, in a compassionate, reassuring manner.
The ASU is located on the second floor of Upper Valley Medical Center and is easily accessible from the main entrance.
The first step for many patients is a pre-admission interview. In this part of the process, you are asked about:
- Any health problems
- All surgeries
- Medicines you take, including amounts and number of times you take it per day
- Allergies and your reaction to taking the medication(s)
The nurse provides you with information about your surgery and answers your questions. This process may be completed in person or by phone.
You may also receive a phone call from our Central Scheduling Department asking for:
- Date of birth
- Address / phone number
- Marital status
- Social security number
- Place of employment
- Insurance information
- Contact person including their phone number
- Family physician
- Any special communication needs
- If you are presently or have been in the military
These questions are a part of the registration process and allow us to expedite your registration on the day of your procedure.
Day of Admission
On the day of your procedure, the ASU department provides personalized nursing care by professional, highly trained staff. Your care will include the following safety measures:
- Patient education
- Site marking
- Hand washing
- Your right to ask questions regarding your care
Our goal is to provide compassionate, individualized, and professional nursing care with an emphasis on your safety and satisfaction.
