Would you need an escort home after minor surgery?
Would someone getting very minor surgery on the ear, but under anesthesia be so groggy afterward they'd need an escort home?
Please answer the actual question: "Would someone getting very minor surgery on the ear, but under anesthesia be so groggy afterward" I'm not asking what is or isn't "minor sugery" or whether patients are allowed to leave alone.

For safety (and liability) reasons, ANY hospital or doc's office or outpatient clinic doing surgery--even if only a minor procedure--that involves any kind of general anesthesia or even just mild sedation (any level of sedation) is going to require you to have someone take you home.
In response to your update--"Please answer the actual question..." You asked TWO questions. The title question is almost always going to be the main question that people address. So don't blame the reader if your writing doesn't clearly indicate what you're thinking. Nobody has ESP, so we can't magically read your mind.

Anesthesia can cause a drop in blood pressure and you could become faint or dizzy.
Its really to protect them from lawsuits.

Yes, wity any surgery, the patient must have someone take them home. They're not allowed to leave alone.Source(s): I've had 6 surgeries now, all outpatient procedures.

If you need general anesthesia, then it's not "minor surgery". Of course if you're groggy, then you will need an escort.
