Intake Process

A nursing assistant will take your child's vital signs. 

This includes:

  • Temperature
  • PulseRespiration
  • Blood pressure (for 4 years and above)
  • Height
  • Weight

No need to pack pajamas! For such a short stay of only a few hours, use our colorful, comfortable gowns, pj's and robes. Many children just wear their own shoes, because most of our elective surgery patients aren't "sick enough" to be in bed and would rather walk around and play in the playroom.

A nurse meets with the parent and child to review all presurgical information and instructions. 

This includes:

  • Nursing assessment
  • Orientation to the room
  • Explanation of presurgical preparation and procedure
  • Medication as ordered
  • Pain management
