How do you handle postop instructions with your patients?Do you do it pre-operatively/with a family member/send home written discharge instructions?

We review postop instructions immediately before discharge with the patient and their caregiver (the person who will be staying with the patient during the first 24 hours of postop). A copy of the written instructions is given to the patient. All of our patients have bed rest following their procedures due to arterial access/achieving hemostasis. Their bed rest allows ample time for sedation recovery.
