Special Care For Special Needs Adults
We understand that loved ones who depend upon others for daily living require special attention. The following tips, will help make care for these adults easier:
The legal guardian needs to sign the consent for surgery and anesthesia on or before the day of surgery. Please bring Power of Attorney or guardianship paperwork.
Please bring the patient’s recent health history and medication information. Be certain to follow the food and drink rules in the Before My Surgery section.
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. A personal attendant will be required to stay with the patient for 24 hours after discharge.
