While your child is undergoing surgery or is in the Phase I Recovery Area, we ask that you remain in the surgery waiting area until the physician has spoken with you. A staff member or volunteer will be present to keep you informed of your child's progress.
After your child arrives in the Phase II Recovery Area, you will be asked to join him or her. We encourage you to participate with the care.
Your child may experience some nausea and/or vomiting. It is not unexpected to have a flushed face. We will give your child clear liquids to drink. The length of stay after surgery is individualized.
Once your child has met discharge requirements, a nurse will review instructions with you regarding diet, wound care, activity and when your child should return to see the doctor.
If you wish, you may fill prescriptions while on campus at the pharmacy listed below or at one of the nearby Walgreens Pharmacies.
