Special Care For Children
We give children the extra care they need in an unfamiliar setting. 

Please refer to the Before My Surgery and Day of Surgery for further tips, as well as the guidelines on this page for children.  Following these instructions may prevent delays or cancellation of the surgery. 
  

Personal Comforts
Please bring your child’s favorite blanket, stuffed animal or toy for added security.

After Surgery
You will be able to be with your child as soon as he/she is awake and medically safe for transfer after recovery.

Special Care For Special Needs Adults

We understand that loved ones who depend upon others for daily living require special attention. Besides the guidelines in the Before My Surgery and Day of Surgery, the following tips, will help make care for these adults easier:

Consent
The legal guardian needs to be present the day of surgery to sign consents and verify information.  Please call if this requirement cannot be met.

Personal Attendant
As with other patients, special needs patients require a parent, legal guardian or other responsible adult to remain at the center from admission through recovery. A personal attendant will be required to stay with the patient for 24 hours after discharge.
