The nurse in charge of your case will meet with you and review some of the specifics of your case. They will want to verify your diagnosis, surgery, allergies, recent history and history especially any surgeries that may have been ordered. This is not as detailed as the history from the pre-operative evaluation but tends to focus on the surgical procedures. Patients often wonder why these histories are so repetitive. Hopefully as more centers use an electronic medical record it will be easy for care givers to retrieve the data and not have to repeat the same process.
