A checklist needs to be completed before the anesthesia procedure. This is to make sure that the necessary precautions and terms have been met. Like doing a blood test, getting an ECG done, etc. It is compulsory for all nurses to complete this checklist and go through it with the senior surgeon and the anesthesiologist before the operation.
The patient should be briefed about self-hygiene before the procedure. The patient might have to have a bath with an antiseptic soap before the surgery in order to keep them free from any infections. The patient needs to be briefed before the procedure and if necessary the surgeon in charge could explain to the patient. The patient will be sedated once the anesthesia shot is given. Necessary reports and scans should be kept ready before the surgery.
