Patients under the age of 18 must be acompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and this person must remain on premises for the entire visit (unless emancipated minor).
All patients must make arrangements for someone to drive them home from the surgery center and possibly stay with them for 24 hours.
The nurse will get the patient ready for surgery in the pre-op admitting area. Then, two family members will be permitted to wait with the patient until he or she is taken into the operating room. After surgery, families will be notified when the patient has been taken to the secondary recovery room. Two family members may join the patient and should remain there until the patient is ready to go home. The main lobby waiting room is also available.
