Patient Guides to Getting Better Faster

These patient guides, calendars, checklists and videos were created as part of Hartford HealthCare’s Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) initiative. ERAS is a pathway meant to help you prepare for surgery and recover more quickly. ERAS focuses on making you an active participant in your recovery because you are the most important member of your healthcare team. Your team also includes your surgeon, physicians, nurse practitioners (APRNs), physician assistants (PAs), nurses, patient care technicians, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), surgical technicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, social workers, care coordinators, and environmental services technicians.

Together, your health care team will work closely with you to provide a safe and comfortable experience!
