Special Care For Special Needs Adults
We understand that loved ones who depend upon others for daily living require special attention. The following tips will help make care for these adults easier:
The legal guardian needs to sign the consent for surgery 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 My Procedure section. Make certain that colon preps are completed prior to arrival at the Center.
As with other patients, special needs patients require a legal guardian or other responsible adult to remain at the center from admission through recovery.
