Before admission

If your hospitalization is scheduled, the doctor will give you instructions to follow before your intervention: personal hygiene, special diet, medical examinations, etc. In this case, we ask you to follow these
instructions to the letter.

In general, avoid drinking alcohol in the days before you are admitted to hospital.
