One or both parents (or guardians) must remain at the center while the child is at our facility. A parent (or guardian) must sign release permits for surgery if the child is under 18. Guardians must bring written proof of guardianship or power of attorney on the day of surgery; without this documentation surgery may be delayed.
If your child is scheduled for surgery, we encourage you to bring his/her favorite toy for extra comfort. Bring your child's favorite blanket and/or stuffed animal and sippy cup. Children may be brought in wearing their pajamas.
Please bring an empty bottle or sippy cup if your child can't drink from a cup. Bring formula as a second choice if juice is not preferred.
Please leave children not having surgery at home.
As soon as your child recovers, you may join him/her in our recovery room.
