Pediatric Surgery - 23 Hour Unit

Day surgery patients who require additional post-operative monitoring prior to discharge.

Your child's surgeon will select this unit for your child to go to after surgery if your child requires over-night monitoring by a nurse.
The child will arrive from the Post Anesthetic Care Unit (PACU) by stretcher and will be transferred to a hospital bed or crib. A responsible adult must stay with the child. There is room for only 1 responsible adult to stay over-night.
