Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I be with my child during the sedation procedure?

Parents may be with their child as they go to sleep. Once the child is asleep, the parent will be directed to a waiting area.

Are there any instructions I need to follow after my child has been discharged from the hospital?

Download our Deep Intravenous Sedation Discharge Instructions. If you do not understand any of the instructions, please talk to the nurse.

When can my child return to their regular activities and school?

Most children can return to school and regular activity by the next day. Some tests or procedures may require a longer recovery. Please talk to your nurse before you leave the hospital. 

How do I obtain the results of the test or procedure my child was sedated for?

Contact the health care provider who ordered the test or procedure for results. The sedation team does not receive results for procedures.
