Friends of New London Hospital November/December 2011
NLHHosts Opening Reception for New Art Display
An incredible variety of colorful work hangs in the
main hallways of NLH! Local area artists, Susan Beere,
a painter and ceramic artist from Warner; Paula Dorr,
a pastel and digital painter from Grantham; Gillian
Martlew, a photographer from New London; and
Audrey Monroe, a watercolorist also from New London,
have hung their varied works for the enjoyment of all
who visit the hospital.
The opening reception on
September 15 was well
attended by many community
members and wonderfully
catered by Banana Leaf
Catering. A special thank you
to Carina Tan and her staff
for generously donating and
serving fantastic hors d’oeuvres!
This show will be on display through the beginning
of January 2012. Thank you to all who make this
program possible!

Same-day surgery patients will not be discharged until
the PACU staff determines that the patient meets the
discharge criteria. Follow-up calls by a nurse are made
to patients within 24 hours after the procedure to ensure
that the patient and family understand all the discharge
information and there have been no complications.
For the 20% of the hospital’s surgical patients whose
procedures require an inpatient stay, the PACU
discharges the patient to the foor, where staff has
received all the information about the patient’s
procedure and condition in advance, and the nurse
will ensure that the patient and family are settled and
comfortable in a private room.
For more extensive information on all the individual
types of surgery offered at New London Hospital,
please visit our website and see a copy of our 2011
Consultation and Referral Guide.
