Children and Special Needs Adults

Special Care For Special Needs Adults

We understand that loved ones who depend upon others for daily living require special attention.  Besides the guidelines in the Day Before Your Procedure and the Day of Your Procedure, the following tips, will help make care for these adults easier:

Consent
The legal guardian needs to sign the consent for the procedure and anesthesia on the day of the procedure.

For Admission
Please bring the patient’s recent health history and medication information.  Be certain to follow the food and drink rules in the Day Before Your Procedure section.

Personal Attendant
As with other patients, special needs patients require a parent, legal guardian or other responsible adult to remain at the center from admission through recovery.  It is recommended that a personal attendant stays with the patient 4-6 hours after discharge.
