Admitting the patient

Before a patient has an operation he should be carefully
prepared for it both mentally and physically. He should be as
clean as possible both internally and externally.
The night before the operation he should be given a warm bath
and a day or two earlier, a shampoo. His teeth should be
brushed twice a day and the mouth rinsed with an antiseptic
solution three times a day.
The patient should not be given anything to eat on the morning
of the operation, and probably only a very small amount of food
the night before.
He Usually given a warm cleansing enema to empty his colon
and just before he goes to the operating theatre he should be
given a urinal or bed pan to empty his bladder. The area that is
to be operated on must be carefully shaved. These precautions
make the operation easier for the surgeon.
The patient is taken to the operating theatre about twenty
minutes before the anaesthetic is administered. His jewellery
and denture are first removed and labeled with his name.
