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 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 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. A personal attendant will be required to stay with the patient for 24 hours after discharge.
