Advice for Parents
The child will need a parent’s full attention the day of the procedure. The entire process, from arrival at the hospital through sedation and recovery, can be physically draining on parents. Parents are strongly encouraged to eat and drink prior to arriving at the hospital. If a parent needs to step out for a snack or a drink the child’s nurse can offer assistance.
Call 217-757-6122 between 7 a.m. - 3 p.m. After hours, call 217-544-6464, ext. 51423 and ask for the pediatric charge nurse.
