Guidelines for Your Child's Same-day Procedure or Surgery
Accompanying Your Child One parent may be present during your child's anesthesia induction. Both you and your child may find it comforting if you remain in the room while anesthesia is being initiated.
The child must be 18 months or older, and the surgeon and anesthesiologist must agree the parent can be present.
Visitation After Surgery After surgery, one parent may visit the child in Post Anesthesia Care Unit (commonly known as PACU). The PACU nurse will let you know when you can see your child. Before your child is discharged, the nurse will review the written post-operative instructions.
A nurse will contact you the day after your child's surgery to check on your child's progress.
