Admission Day Hip Replacement

This video takes you through what will happen when you come in to hospital on the day of your operation.

You will usually be admitted on the day of surgery. Please telephone the ward before
leaving home to confirm your bed is available.

You will be welcomed and shown around the ward. A nurse will check your details and complete the nursing assessment.

Do feel free to ask any questions.

You will be measured and fitted with …
AV BOOTS: inflatable boots to help your circulation and protect you against Deep Vein Thrombosis.
A WEDGE to help maintain correct position of your hip following surgery.

Observations of temperature, pulse, respiration, and blood pressure will be recorded.
