D.) The Night Before

  • Please be sure that your child has a bath or shower and his or her hair is washed the night before the procedure.
  • Have your child remove all nail polish and jewelry, including piercings.
  • Discuss the next day’s events with your child in terms that he or she can understand. Be careful to inform, but not alarm. Learn more.
  • Collect everything you need to bring.
  • Follow the eating and drinking instructions provided by the surgery nurse. Your child's surgery may be rescheduled to another day if he or she eats after these times.
