Orientation & Pre-Surgery Testing

Bone and Joint Institute Orientation is held each Wednesday morning in the NPMC chapel. Your physician will schedule your date to attend, typically the week prior to your surgery. Each patient and their primary post-surgery caregiver should attend this informative and interactive one-hour classroom style group orientation taught by the Bone and Joint Unit Nurse Leader. The Bone and Joint Institute Orientation sets clear expectations so that each patient (and primary caregiver) is comfortable with what to expect from pre-admission to discharge to post-surgical therapy, and to equip each patient for optimal outcomes. Following the orientation, Bone and Joint program participants are escorted to their pre-admission appointment for pre-surgery lab and imaging procedures.

The Bone and Joint Unit

After your procedure, you will be cared for by our specialized orthopedic nursing team on our Bone and Joint unit. Located on the first floor of the hospital, this specially designed unit is specifically for our bone and joint patients for increased staff efficiencies and optimal patient outcomes.
