For Our Parents

Here are some documents that will help your understand the surgical process.

  • Preventing Surgical Site Infections
  • Chlorhexidine Bath Wipes
  • What to Expect Your Child's Day of Surgery - A "To Do" List
  • "About Me" Informational Form
  • When surgery or a procedure requiring anesthesia is needed, it's important to bring your child to a place designed for children and staffed by professionals trained to provide health care to children. When you step into the surgical services areas of Wolfson Children's Hospital, you will notice bright colors, artwork, and "hands-on" play areas provided to relax our young patients and ease their wait. Younger children are transported in red wagons or boats rather than wheelchairs. Children awaiting surgery may be entertained by well-mannered pet dogs that visit, by musicians, or any number of volunteers who give of their time to bring a smile to a child's face.

    To help refer to the patient guide for general "before and after" surgery instructions.

    The staff in our pediatric surgery areas is highly qualified. The anesthesiologists are board certified in pediatric anesthesia. The Recovery Room nurses are certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS). Their focus on children enables the staff to communicate with your child on his or her level and to anticipate needs. Our trained staff uses observation and monitoring to evaluate your child even when he or she doesn't articulate feedback about their condition.
