One Week Before Surgery

  • Consider a visit with our PREP clinic – a pre-operative anesthesia clinic where you and your child can learn about what to expect.  You can also ask for a tour.
  • Review tips on giving your child emotional support from our Child Life program.
  • Arrange childcare for siblings during the procedure.  Siblings may not go into the recovery room or spend the night at the hospital.
  • Arrange for any necessary equipment or supplies needed at home after surgery.
  • Notify your doctor if your child has been exposed to any communicable diseases (such as chicken pox) in the past three weeks.
