You will be given specific instructions on how to take care of your child at home after surgery and what medications to give (if any). If you have come with another family member or friend, and you want them to help you, please let them hear the instructions too. And feel free to ask the staff if you are unsure about anything!
Sometimes patients have questions after leaving a hospital, and that’s why we call you at home. We want to make sure you’re okay, that you arrived home safely and that you are able to care for your child safely. Within the next 3 days, you will receive an automated telephone call that only lasts about 2 minutes. Since we use an automated system to do the initial outreach, when the system asks, simply respond that you desire a call from us and one of our team will personally call you back.
Thank you again for choosing New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai for your health care needs.
