A trip to the hospital is sometimes unavoidable. If you are scheduled for surgery, you may feel understandably anxious, not
just because you will be under anesthesia and not know what is happening to your body, but also because of everything you
may have heard about hospitals during the pandemic.
This guide is written by the FLCCC’s Manager of Clinical Support and Education, Kristina Morros, MS, CRNA, who has 22 years
of clinical experience as a nurse anesthetist. It is designed to help patients anticipate and plan for anesthesia, surgery and a
post-operative stay in the hospital.
