Keeping You Connected
With wireless communication playing such an important role in our lives, both social and professional, we are proud to provide wireless internet access on the nursing unit at Alvarado Hospital. This allows our patients and their families to stay in touch with extended family and support persons via email. Some folks have even “worked” from the hospital, keeping up with their office, etc.
I encourage my patients to bring laptop computers to the hospital. Patients who have enjoyed obesity-related internet sites, or who have connected with an “internet buddy” as support through the surgical process have greatly enjoyed this service, as it has given them the opportunity to share their experiences as events occur.
Additionally, keeping an online journal of your experiences after surgery is extremely valuable (for you and for others) and there’s no better time to start than the day of your surgery!
