On the day of surgery you should arrive at your appointed time. You will be admitted to the center and we will begin preparing you for your procedure.
You will be asked to sign consent forms for your procedure and anesthesia, which acknowledges your permission for the physicians and facility to care for you. If the patient is a minor, this form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.
We invite you to be an active participant in the planning and delivery of your care. Pain management, medication therapy given or prescribed as well as hand hygiene and cleanliness are areas patients and family members can contribute.
Both parents may stay with their child in the pre-operative area before surgery and in step-down recovery following surgery. Feel free to bring a favorite stuffed animal or blanket. A parent or legal guardian must remain in the facility while their child is under our care. Please bring a bottle or sippy cup if your child does not drink from a cup. It is fine for your child to have something to drink after the procedure.
