After surgery you will be taken to our fully equipped recovery room. Here you will be cared for by our recovery room registered nurses. Our nurses are trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). In order to speed your recovery your postoperative pain will be routinely assessed. Your nurses will provide you with pain medicine as soon as possible after your request. If your pain is not relieved by the medicine or you are having any side effects please inform your nurse. Also, if you have any post-operative nausea please inform your nurse so treatment can be provided. When you are ready for discharge the recovery room nurses will provide you with specific written discharge instructions from your doctor regarding your post-operative care. It is very important for you to follow these instructions to promote healing and provide the best possible outcome.
