Recovering From Surgery

What to expect.

During your stay at Genesis, you’ll be given instructions about your recovery and discharge expectations. A nurse will review these instructions with you and your designated family member/visitor who is with you before you leave the facility.


24 Hours After Surgery

You’ll likely feel drowsy for several hours after your surgery, so it’s advised to have an adult home with you for the first 24 hours to help you during your recovery.

Ask Questions & Voice Concerns

If you or your family have any questions about your surgery and at-home care and treatment, do one or more of the following:

  • For any emergency, immediately call 9-1-1.
  • Contact your doctor at the office number listed on the discharge instructions.
  • Call the Genesis NurseLine: 800-989-4949.

Post-Surgery Billing

After your surgery, you’ll receive a billing statement from Genesis notifying you that we’ve submitted your bill to your insurance company for the facility fee. You’ll receive a separate bill from your physician. If you received other services, such as anesthesia, X-ray or lab tests, you’ll be billed separately.
