Before coming to the hospital, remove any watches, necklaces, or earrings that your child wears and leave them at home so they are not misplaced.
Your child will need to know that people in the operating room will be wearing surgical clothes to help prevent germs from infecting the surgical incision.
Most surgical teams include a surgeon, an anesthesiologist, a nurse anesthetist, and an operating room nurse. The number of team members differs depending on the type of surgery performed.
During surgery, your child will be given some form of anesthesia—medication given to relieve pain and sensation.
