Pre-Op Holding celebrates the grand opening of their new patient restroom

Staff celebrating Pre-Op Holding's new patient restroom

Carolyn Geoghegan, RN, Phyllis Garr, RN, Margaret Foley, BSN, RN, and Gail Nuzzi, BSN, RN, cut the ribbon officially opening the Pre-Op Holding patient restroom

In Pre-Op Holding at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, staff help patients prepare for surgery. Patients are asked to sign paper work, tests may be performed on the day of the procedure, vital signs are checked, medications are reviewed and IVs are inserted. At this time, patients are also asked to change into a hospital gown. Unfortunately, the Pre-Op Holding area at BWFH does not have a restroom for patients, meaning they have to walk back through the patient area waiting room to use the facilities. But with the grand opening of a brand new patient restroom in Pre-Op Holding, patients can now feel much more comfortable.
