A few days prior to surgery, a nurse from Same Day Surgery will call to confirm what time the child should arrive at the hospital and review your child’s medicines with you.
The night before surgery, make sure to follow the eating and drinking instructions given to you. Remove fingernail polish.
On the day of the procedure, have your child dress in comfortable clothing and leave any jewelry at home. Make sure to bring the following with you:
- Complete list of the child's medicines
- Completed physical exam form filled out by the child’s primary care physician within 30 days prior to the procedure
Once at the hospital, a doctor or nurse from the Anesthesia Department will talk to you about the anesthesia and answer any questions you may have.
