Nominate an emergency contact & caregiver
Your planning must involve securing financial avenues to pay for the trip and the procedures, including insurance settlements. Speak to your doctor for a thorough understanding of the required procedures and seek as much clarity as you would like before embarking on the journey.
What must I expect during the hospitalization?
The time at the hospital should be utilized for receiving treatment, resting, and recuperating but happens most of the time is that the patients and caregivers are only focused on the treatment aspect and then the hurry of discharge. Although treatment is a major aspect of the hospital journey, which includes clinical, investigative and small procedures or major surgery but rest and recovery are equally critical. There should be adequate rest given to patients for the best results.
What must I bring along for hospitalization?
Patients must bring along the following list of items for hospitalization at Gleneagles Global Hospital:
A referral letter from your treating physician.
Original copies of identification such as a Passport, relevant Identity Card, Birth Certificate (for patients below 15 years), Driver’s License, etc.
Guarantee letter from insurance company or employer (applicable to international companies that have credit arrangements with our hospitals).
Previous medical reports e.g. X-Ray, Laboratory Reports, Blood Test Results, etc, if any.

Can the patients have a care-giver and receive visitors?
We always encourage patients to get a close relative or a family member or a friend along at all times for mental and emotional support for the patient. But when a patient is undergoing intensive care or critical procedure we highly discourage visitors for the patients’ personal benefit and faster recovery.
What is the expected outcome of hospitalization?
Completely healing a disease or a disorder is the ultimate aim of any doctor and patient. Still, in some cases, especially for major illnesses just a few days of stay at the hospital may not be able to achieve that goal 100 percent. Hence, we encourage patients to learn and understand the likely outcomes of hospitalization. Patients must understand that in most cases, the end of hospitalization is not certainly the end of the treatment cycle. Succeeding visits may be necessary or you may be on medication.
Preparing for Surgery
For international patients, most of the surgeries are elective procedures giving them enough time to plan and prepare. Surgical intervention is often required to assist a patient to overcome sickness and return to normal activities. Surgeries need not be planned at times it can also be emergency procedures. In case of emergency, the situation allows for little preparation. However, in the elective cases, it is advised to the patients to be well-informed and well-prepared in advance. Preparation of surgery need to involve the following,
Detailed consultations with your doctors on the requirement for surgery.
Comprehensive understanding of the procedure and outcome.
Undergoing appropriate medical investigations for the surgery.
Seeking insurance approval and/or arrangement of funds.
Preparation for surgery most importantly involves the mental willingness of a patient, and in some cases the consent and approval of the blood family.
Surgery Admission Steps
Why is a surgery necessitated?
The need for surgical intervention differs from every patient’s case to the case. Nevertheless, the fundamental principle is that the condition requires extraction, suturing, grafting, bypassing, and other such procedures – which aggregate surgery. Doctors will only opt for surgical intervention if it is very important and is the need of an hour.
Who will perform the surgery?
You will be in a thorough conversation on the need and process of the surgery with the assigned surgeon performing the surgery. Every surgery will have a specialist surgeon who heads the operation, assisted by a team of specialized nurses, paramedics, and other specialists. An anaesthetists will monitor your conscious levels and administer necessary pain medication.
What will happen on the day of surgery?
On the day of the operation, the patient will be moved to a preoperative area and prepped for surgery. This includes changing into sterile surgical robes, intubation (if necessary), and final investigations. Patients may be asked to avoid eating food from midnight on the day of the surgery. Any other precautions will be informed well ahead of time.
Unexpected changes in the surgical schedule may happen sometimes. This may lead to a change in your surgery timing on the day of surgery. Your family members, friends will be asked to wait in the surgical waiting room or the hospital lobby during your surgery. After being shifted in the operating room by the nurse, several monitors will be applied to monitor heart rate and rhythm. Three small sticky patches would be placed on your chest and an automatic blood pressure cuff will be placed on the arm.
Things to Remember Before Surgery
Do not eat, drink (not even water) after midnight the day before your surgery. If you have been instructed to take important medications, take no more than two tablespoons of water and no later than two hours before surgery. If you eat or drink after midnight, your surgery may be delayed or will be cancelled.
Do not wear hairpins, watches, contact lenses, or removable jewellery. If you wear a wig please remove.
You may be asked to remove dentures and other non-permanent items including undergarments before surgery.
If you are admitted to the hospital after your surgery, you may want to bring pyjamas or nightgown, slippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant and other personal toiletries, etc.
What kind of anesthetic will I be given?
It depends on the nature of the surgery, the patient’s condition and the recovery options post-surgery, the pain-relievers and anaesthesia are decided, which will be informed to the patients and caregivers for their consent. General anaesthesia is preferred for critical surgeries while for localized procedures, local anaesthesia is preferred. For surgeries wherein, a larger area is operated then spinal anaesthesia will be given.
How long does it take to recover from surgery?
Typically, an overnight stay in the post-surgical intensive care allows a patient to recover enough from the surgery. With anaesthesia waning, the patient may experience mild grogginess, pain, etc. This is completely natural.
Following surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room where you will receive continuous care by a qualified nurse. Your vital signs will be regularly monitored along with any dressing that was applied after surgery. You may experience dry mouth, sore throat, chills, and blurred vision. If you experience pain or discomfort in the area of your surgery, do not hesitate to ask for pain medication. Be sure to report your pain. Doctors will monitor the vitals and move the patient to intensive care, normal ward or room as necessary.
Your family members/friends should be in the waiting room before the end of your surgery time so that the surgeon can speak to them. If they need to leave, it is best to do so at the beginning of your surgery to avoid missing the surgeon after your surgery. Your surgeon will let your family/friends know how you are doing and answer questions, letting them know whether you require hospitalization or whether you will be discharged home.
Only if you are well and free of all complications post-treatment, our team of efficient doctors will thoroughly assess you to check if you are fit, at the time of discharge. The medical staff will provide a discharge list catering to the patient’s needs as well as a list of permitted activities as per the procedure performed.
We realize that being away from home and family, especially when you are unwell is difficult and you are anxious to take the next flight home.
