Enhanced recovery helps patients and care providers plan and prepare for surgery together. By taking an active role in your surgery and recovery process, you can heal faster, safer and easier.
ERAS is an evidence supported care pathway that has instructions about eating and drinking, physical activity and controlling your pain and nausea. ERAS aims to put YOU, the person having surgery, at the forefront of care to help you feel better faster, reduce complications after surgery and have a shorter hospital stay.
* Please ask your surgeon if the surgery you are having is under the ERAS program.
The following hospitals have the ERAS program:
Read the education booklet
Follow the clear juice instructions
Bring your sugar free chewing gum to the hospital on the day of surgery
Eat and drink as soon as you and your healthcare team feel it is safe
Sit in a chair as soon as you and your healthcare team feel it is safe
Walk to the bathroom and in the hallway as soon as you and your healthcare team feel it is safe
You are the most important part in your recovery.
