Pre-surgical tours help patients and families prepare for a surgical procedure and hospital stay. If you would like to schedule a tour before being admitted to the Hospital, please contact the appropriate Child Life specialist or nurse listed below.
The Surgery Preparation Program will help you and your child become more comfortable with the surgery experience. A Child Life specialist will take you on a fun tour around the hospital and assist your family in learning about surgery and the hospital at the same time. The tour will take between 30 and 45 minutes and will help to ease your concerns by knowing what to expect. Brothers and sisters are welcome.
What Your Pre-surgery Tour Will Offer
- A visit to the admitting office, pre-operative area, playroom, school room, the Child Life Zone and patient room.
- An opportunity to ask questions.
- A chance for children to see and play with medical equipment, encouraging the expression of their feelings about the surgery.
